I am not afraid of stepping
across the threshold
into the fire of the unknown
of sitting while the body pulsates
with undigested particles of this life
of staying while the system unwinds the knot.
It is the quality of attending I bring to these moments, I know less about.
The way of the heart
that knows only
of openness and infinite, silent gentleness.
ever – available suspension
around and in everything
just as it is.
