Seeking The Present Moment - Poem by G.R. Gaus
I found myself within your space,
Accidentally, quite by chance,
Seems to be a most peaceful place,
The steps to your elusive dance.
My jealous mind won’t take part,
By confusions of the past,
Forgetting how to take to heart,
As a life has been miscast.
Planning well into the future,
Held hostage and at bay,
Tied tightly by its suture,
Unwillingly I obey.
I long to return within your space,
Nirvana rules in glory,
Loosely in your warm embrace,
Unfolding in life’s story.
Inside the body, a tug of war,
Tearing apart the soul,
Knocking on an empty door,
Freedom from control.
Close your eyes, deeply breathe,
Remember who you are,
Loosen life’s false woven sheave,
Quit seeking near and far.
I am as I sing,
Shall be what shall be,
I am in everything,
Everything is in me.
