To See

To see into
Instead of skimming over,
Passing by,
Rushing through

To STOP
In the midst of busy,
p a u s e
With a quiet heart
And observe

One moment,
One breath,
F U L L

Questions
Skimmed from the surface
Like heavy cream,

Doubt refracting in a
Blinding arc of same,


Vibrant, wide-eyed
Thought guests
Welcomed to this dance
Of shadow and light

A taffy-pull of colors
Stretching,
Blending,
Melding into


Clear-bottomed,
Spring-fed pools
Of endless
Possibility

Effortless awareness of
D E E P.

    I could just stop right there for a few hours. But the rest of your poem is insightful as well. You end it appropriately: DEEP.
