If We Just Look Long Enough

In its quiet elegance,
it reveals heaven, humans and the earth.
I look deeply long enough that seems like eternity
and then I see what the ancient sages and poets and monks saw,
and I just know…the soul stirs because it recognizes beauty and deeper truth,
and I just bow my head.
