Impermanence

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer, RIP

IMPERMANENCE

The everyday sameness
when thoughts take their usual path
through the labyrinth of the same tasks
without a thought they flow,
as the outside humming
subtle sound waves
and summer fragrance enter
one’s sleepy consciousness
without even opening the inner eye,
without noticing the importance.
As we breathe in and
slowly exhale in silence
a piece of ours will dissipate.
Foolishly we try to catch
our perfect moments
and count the imperfect ones.
How many do we have?
Are we enough?

The sky doesn’t mind,
the birds keep on exploring,
the river continues its journey,
while the everyday sameness
transforms the shades of light;
nothing is the same.
Don’t count your life,
the moons, the sunsets,
bathe in awareness
of the here and now.
