Just a clean surface
on everything and everyone
to be noticed and absorbed
as the first time -
be curious again
thrillingly open to all,
just an hourglass focus of stillness
memory locking wonder,
entering moonrise or waterfall
feeling your heart warming
or weeping, truly awake
Bernice Lever (C) — from “Imagining Lives” , Black Moss Press. 2012.
