Being at Rest

Being at Rest, originally uploaded by Mai An Hoa.

behold this
know that amid the chaos
I looked out at you
and your flashy things
and muted color
I look out at you
while hearing a natural rhythm
like things growing
and falling to the ground
the river and the clouds
the sound of threshing
and the deep tone of a bell
here I am being at rest
in contemplation
of all I am
in this life
that gently blows across me
as if the wind of a butterfly's wing
behold this
I am observing
the way I have been
for thousands of years
smelling the aroma of plenty
learning the sacred insight
