It Is Just What It Is

It Is Just What It Is

…it is an engaged private moment…an eloquent communion…when I clearly notice the soft shaft of light…when I see the outline of a leaf…when I hear my own breathing…even hearing the sound of silence…it is an expected intimacy…in all honesty…without prejudice…there is this sense of “inner otherness” that suffuses and extremely manifests my being silent when I commune with nature…when I am engaged in my photo-contemplative walks…when I write poetry…when I read a poem…that inner otherness is in the works…it is beyond articulation…and there are no demarcation lines…no edges…no limitations…no dimensions…it is plain and simple and honest…time is suspended…it is a parallel existence…another “place”…another “world”…a place in-between wakefulness and a dream…and I love dwelling in it…it nurtures my soul…and yet, at the end of the day, it is just what it is…

    Would you mind, Virgilio, if I shared this on Resonant Velocity?
