Picture Perfect View

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Buddha


Everything moves gracefully today
like a silk scarf in the wind
flowing away.
The puffy clouds in the pristine sky,
the cars on the distant highway,
the couple strolling in the nearby park
like lovers holding hands,
the leaves on the branches of young trees,
even the blades of grass
are dancing in the rhythm of life,
as I sit on top of the hill
in silence meditating
on the fragrance of the air I breathe.
How fortunate I am to have this
picture perfect view to see
from above without looking down.
I accept the good won’t last and
the bad too shall pass.
I only have Now and everything
it brings to my sight, feeding my heart.
Only now am I alive.
