POEM: Let be the realization

LET BE THE REALIZATION – for Bob, Margaret & Jenny

Pause.

Let be.

Let be
the realization
that you are
life’s longing;
shaped as
a wave formed
fleetingly
upon our one infinite sea.

Let be
the open secret that
makes this light-reflected moment,
this one, here, here,
or this hiss of wind and
rustle of leaves
this child’s smile,
all that ever is, and was and shall be.

Let be
the home-coming,
the welcome stranger
who turns and shows you
with the flash of a wry smile
your true face, and now see

that all journeying was
to here,
right now – just this:

just this
the
no-form
out of which
all forms arise,

just this
the Mystery
at the centre of and
beyond all things

just this – the
stillness
beneath the hiss of the breath
breathing you, breathing me.

Let be.
