Flow

There is nothing in this moment
+++that stays.
+++Nothing to guide me,
+++Nothing to hinder me.

Those are all thoughts and feelings
+++that rise and fall.
They come from nowhere
+++except from
+++previous thoughts and feelings.

Yes, there is sensation and emotion,
+++the brain’s tools for
+++sifting through
+++information
+++that might be useful
+++to the body.

Yet those, too, rise and fall,
+++come and leave.

"Poise," by Mike Shell. Red leaf floating in water on blacktop, with reflected light. Cradle of Forestry, Pisgah National Forest, NC.

Who notices?
+++Who clings to
+++or pushes away?
