Presence

Presence

There are so many things going on 

in this present moment 

Then those things disappear 

but the present moment does not 

The present moment is our taste of the eternal 

Every leaf that quakes in the wind

Every bird that flaps its wings and flies 

Every ray of light 

It rests in the here and now

Why do we seem to constantly miss it?

Why are we so distracted

That we miss eternity in our midst? 

Why are we dwelling in the past? 

Why are we consumed with the future

A future we may not have? 

It is in this moment that we are eternal 

It is in this moment that the eternal embraces us

If we simply sit still to breathe
