trust, the moment brings happiness
no waiting, reflecting, contemplating
ours to simply enjoy
not ours to keep, claim, identify with
happiness knows no master
joy, no student to be mastered
like the butterfly circling the garden
joy lands on the still open flower

Thanks Gautami and Dan. Gautami: Glad you like it.
Like this. I needed this!
Dan: thanks for stopping back. Exactly right. So life seems, and we smile because that is all the witness needs to do. Be the witness. By the way, we are sitting by the pool here at Playa Conchal Resort. The morning started with the hike on the beach at 530 am. Easy does it sunrise and now a constant breeze washing over us.
I just had to add yet another smile as I read this yet again. A masterful masterless poem and teaching. The kind of smile -and flower- that happened -yet never happened–
between Śākyamuni Buddha and Mahākāśyapa …
Dan: Thanks. Smile and world smiles with you!
