stillness

Let me be an apprentice to stillness.
Let me be an open vessel
filling with the vastness of each moment 
overflowing with every 
loving
grieving
lustful
painful
ecstatic
aching
raw
sensation.
Moments that 
birth and die 
contract and expand
arise and dissolve.
Let me embody exquisite gentleness 
and the strength to soften
with my tendrils stretched wide
shimmering in receptivity.
Let me breathe into each question 
without ever needing to know the answer.
