A “present moment”, spontaneous #poem – sweat

pours down my forehead
and drips, coolly, first
to the pockets around my nose
and then onto the desk
in front of me.

Summer Sweat

It’s a “good sweat“:
the kind where I know
that I’ve accomplished
what I set out to do;
where (even if the
next step is not clear)
my body/spirit
is stirred with the
life-giving flow of blood
and oxygen;

Where muscle and bone —
drenched in their own
juicy sensations of joy —
are at the ready;
each vessel, joint, and
cell is ready to join as one

Music And Dance SunsetIn the dance of joy.

Nothing in particular to be
joyous about. Just the knowing
that I am alive and that these
sensations are signs that I’m

Not even close to dead yet,
however soon or unexpectedly
that moment might come.

That’s why this moment is
so blissful:
I am in love. And not
in the old way of being
in love with someone or
some thing.

It is only this moment,
this divinity,
this humanness,
this aliveness,
and yes,

this sweat.
