Staying Long Enough

 

staying beneath the thoughts

neither fighting them

nor thinking them

being at a deeper level

in the body

in the breath

not rising to the mind

no desire

to repress

or express

simply allowing contentment

staying in the nothingness

crouched in the darkness

long enough

for another source

to begin to flow

well up as a teary sight

or a blessed flood of light

 

(from Still Becoming)
