The Width

“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”
(Diane Ackerman)

One of those mornings
Pondering, wondering
The minutes after meditation
Quiet calm
And nourished feelings
Out of my mind’s sky
This quote comes to mind
Reminds me of the depth of Life
Reminds me that today
At least just for today
I will see past the form
I will remember the connection
Our shared humanness
I will get out of my head
And feel the Quiet Calm
Of this Universe
The Depth of Life
The Width
The Unseen
Nourishes us All
Every moment
Every breath
I hope that you, too
Go within
