The Question

What if in this single moment
the sun shining on my face
is a mirror
of my soul
and by simple acknowledgement
the past recedes,
the future evaporates,
hunger devours itself,
and this moment expands
into all there is-
more than enough?

    I just had one of those moments while reading your poem.

    Very powerful imagery... your words spoke to my soul.


    Namaste, Shirley

    Good poem. I like the idea of imagined opposites.
