Seeing, Paying Attention

Since everything is always moving
all the time,
my challenge is

seeing, paying attention

to the many kindnesses
hidden in this as the world -
from the promise of a rosebud
to a perfect storm-klatch of words,

because they were all
put here for me.

Yes, even you were put here
for me

and I for you.

May my life fit
into the space of time
I have been given,

and when I am taken
may there be

no debts owed on my bank account
no apologies or tributes left unspoken
no dreams or desires not sated. 


  1. True and beautifully crafted.

  2. Amen!

    Loved this, Buddah!

  3. What a prayer... what a simple yet immense prayer.
