You Have to Sweep the Temple Steps

                                                                      Clear a new path
                                                                     brush away the dirt
                                                                 gently prepare for change.
                                                         Wash away the compulsion to rush,
                                                               wander the grounds one slow
                                                                               step at a time.
                                                                      Feel the peace of
                                                        No resolutions    pledges     promises
                                                                        Instead     savor
                                                                explorations     revelations
                                                                   Notice pure stillness
                                                                             in action.
Regard   Distill   Reveal
There is time enough between
spaces of doing
just be.
With broom in hand, begin again
clear a path
brush lightly
sweep the temple steps.

  1. I discovered your blog through Bridgette Guerzon Mills' blog, Contemplating the Moon. I wanted to tell you how much I love your photographs. I'm a photographer also, trying to incorporate encaustic into my work.
