A Thousand and One Places

It slides from my hands this slippery thing called now

my attention a thousand and one places but here

the moment, so easily missed


Rein in those horses of thought

galloping free over the vast open plains of my mind

Let me mount just one sturdy steed to lead the herd

steady, strong and responsive

every nuance felt


We breathe in time and move as one

toward the watering hole

where we will drink

Beautiful poem! My favorite part is the image of this united steed arriving at a watering hole to drink...There is a quote from Adyashanti that comes to mind. "Most people give their attention to what they don't like. Put your attention on what you love."
Thanks Susannah! Colleen
