Lifting The World Without EvenTouching It


The backyard, the shadow,
the light, dried leaves, the dirt.
All are engaged in silence
and stillness, in an afternoon
of destiny, at the same time,
and for a few minutes, I, too,
was silent and still, absorbing,
internalizing, my thoughts
unmoving, just letting in
everything without logic,
just the heart seeing. We were
all in the midst of suspended time.
This is one of the mysteries of life,
a haven for survival, a place
where the world is lifted up
without even touching it. And
everything becomes light and enlightened.
All done in righteousness and peace
and deep understanding.
