Have you ever wondered
how you got here?
And then in the next breath, realized that here
is exactly where you have been
all of your life. Seems kind of funny
to come to the reckoning that
what has been so long searched
for, has always been here,
right here in the midst of this.
Here is here. There is not even
a there- there or here. Only this
being here, present to each breath,
each miracle of moment,
happening in only one place,
here, right here, right now.
