Eternity


So many challenges to spring:
    Snow fall
    Snow fall
    Bitter cold
    Snowfall again
          Pressing silence and solitude
          Hard onto the heart
               Stay alone
               Stay here
               Stay silent.
Snow falls again:
     This time on leaf buds
      Rhododendrons who know spring will come
      Primroses
      Daffodils.

This is too much;
I give up on everything:
     Life
     Love
     Hope
     A landscape that cannot forgive long enough to let me in.

And I am free of every attachment:
     I want nothing.
     I ask for nothing.

     I find myself with everything,
     Everything and complete.

Then it happens:
     Daffodils drill the earth
     Boring holes through hard ground and fallen leaves--
          So many needles thrust through the fabric of life
          Joining the ground beneath me to heaven.
       
This is one story, and it is the eternal moment.
And I find myself with everything and complete.
