you are already that – 0026

Poetry flows around my body in meditation

Like the air that comes through my window to touch my skin

The words penetrate the chambers of my heart

Each syllable moves through my veins

Reaching my extremities

To flow from my fingertips into the world

I open my eyes

Expecting to see my Lord

Dressed in white

A brightness that would cause my eyes to adjust

But the room is empty

Only the sound of birds singing

The same song that put me into a deep meditation

I listen carefully

To the chorus of the blackbird

I hear a distinctive pattern

It’s familiar

The same pattern I see in the eyes of the girl I love

In the formation of a fig tree

In the movement of a flickering flame

I understand the bird song

Like a universal language

It says

What you are searching for

You are already that
