Exiting the Clouds

Exiting the Clouds


Entering one's Now

How long the traverse
Mountainous obstacles
Seem not of our creation
Yet rock hard impasses appear
Where clear path seemed obvious
Now impassible

The best laid plans...
Swirl amidst the winds of challenge
Icing our tenacity
Whiting-out our vision
Deafening our ears to resolve

Made to stop
We seek refuge
Cower we must
Time's weather independent
Unaware love's thermal core
Knows but limited challenge

Suffering assumes the time
We fearfully give it
Granting indecision
Until we satiate

Sentience abides
Patience its virtue

The conscious
Somehow realize a clearing
Both path and atmosphere
Reveal survival routes

Ill weather lifts
We often know not why
A path reveals itself
Accompanied by fixed ropes of trust

Having exited the clouds
We embrace our trailhead
Willingly remove extra weight
No longer needed upon our shoulders

Stripping to our nakedness
We ready the entering of one's Now
