A Moment of Refuge

Take refuge in this moment.

Ephemeral, unknowable, it isn't what it seems.

In the madness of delusion, we seize on certain certainties,

but like a photograph of memory,
reality dissolves into disconnect if you look too closely.

Nothing is what we think; it's more interesting than that.

So rest in this moment, which is passing as we speak.

This is Buddhism-inspired poem is a Sunday Scribblings post.

Rest so inviting yet perhaps when invited to it we will fight tooth and nail. Awesome words you have written.

I love the line: Nothing is what we think; it is more interesting than that. This is a great piece and we really should enjoy the moment.
