Be

Don’t be so very focused on where we may go,
That you miss where we are.
Or miss that we are.
All and everything is becoming,
Going from A to B, or right to C.

Be a part of it,
And you too are being swept downstream,
To experience nothing but that small part of the great flood
With which you flow.

But to Be! Oh, to be!
Let everything else become,
And move on to its destination,
And on again, and again!

Time and tide will take their toll,
So why aid them?
Only we, the aware, can make such a choice.

Let us stand, then, and be, and we shall see
All of this grand parade,
And wave at its passing
While we remain, embraced.
