Do You Feel? - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph
It was still below, at street level
As I climb up and walk on skywalk
The breeze is most pleasant, continuous
But what parts of the body feel it?
One is not aware that it is only in some places.
I am reminded of Goenka guruji’s talk in 1990
At Igatpuri, drawing my attention to the feel
Of the shirt-sleeves falling on my upper arm.
He said, “ The mildest of sensation
If you become aware of, anger or greed,
It will be easier for you to control it.”
It is a leap of faith: awareness empowers.
