Simplest Thing

Simplest Thing

the simplest thing is this:
we are love exploring love

is it like this? yes
is it like that? yes

how do we know?
because there is experience of
this and that

are we not billions of prisms angling
against the same light?

in any string of words
passionate opinion, neutral pass
elegant perspective, careless blurt
wise teaching, clever lie
inspiring reason, trite drivel
there is love exploring love

in any act of man and nature
compassionate, beastly
artistic, clumsy
mighty, meek
giver, thief
there is love exploring love

do we not experience all of these?

we explore oceans
mountains
deserts
forests
islands
galaxies
without demanding that all must be like this
must behave like that
we explore to discover
diversity
majesty
creativity
perspective
nourishment
in their thises and thats
and bow in awe to such treasure

are we willing to explore humans
with such reverence?

mind has explored
concept of right
concept of wrong
based on
concept of good
concept of bad
trying every way possible to make
one concept control another concept
or better yet make
one concept master
so “I”
can finally be satisfied

heart explores differently
curiously
in wonder
in receipt
in humility
in embrace
in joy, joy, joy
celebrating, oh celebrating
love’s ability to explore itself

now mind
exhausted from its feats
is ready to yield
and heart is willing
for the simplest thing

Share the love...
