Always There

Always There

A Poem by KWP

…..and just like 

opening the window, but

not inviting the softest wind 

 

no expectation, as to

when it will come 


….. as the gentle breeze caresses 

your cheeks, your eyelids, your nose ….. 


to wait without waiting 

see all there is to see 

viewing without judging, the

everywhen residing 

in you, in me


…..feel no space between you and the caress, 

connectedness with the breeze…..


ask in the knowing the 

answer will come

trust the knowledge within

it is all there 

in our vision of duality


in equal parts 

all is within


unwrap the layers, unfurl 

watch intently, your self

and you will see 

in equal parts

all is within


…..always there, hiding in subtitles, 

always there, don’t be on guard, 

when it arrives, allow the bathe…..

This is a striking way to describe "living in the moment" . . . every line is an example of the openness without manipulation that you advocate in your msg. This reminds me of how many people will say (after a bad breakup . . . or many in a row): NEVER AGAIN! Despite my decades of bad lovin', I still stay open to the possibilities, without having an expectation as to the outcome. I get better & better at this, so maybe one day it will finally snap into place. But even if it doesn't, I've learned to hold the magic of living this way, with or without another special one! Love how your poem says we gotta behold our own inner magic and then maybe this will attract other magic too! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Your work always strikes me as zen. There's this passive natural flow and a sort vanishing of ego or daily logic.

Good stuff. Way to start new years.

Always there - the wind
From home, we can see across the water of the Irish sea lands so far away
On a clear day, a land sheathed in mist
Where cats have no tails The map has three legs
The motto (vaguely)
' Which ever way you throw us we will stand'

love your use of "everywhen"
no expectations is waiting without really waiting....
letting life like that breeze caress us....envelop us...to just live and give without expecting back...
and to not judge others, i think gives us more ability to see all the parts of ourselves and work on those parts that need fixing.
i like the poem within the poem...and the last stanza..."hiding in subtitles"
some of us need subtitles because we don't want to interpret...we just want simple, black and white, easily understandable...but i think between the lines is where the most fun in life is.
really good poem, KWP...

"viewing without judging..." is one of the most difficult things a person can do. No one can truly, 100% pull it off either. Part of being concious in the first place is having a subjective take on things. But some do it better than others... admitting that everything is subjective is the first step to not seeing everything so subjectively... or not, what the f**k do I know?
