This day I wish to choose anew
To live each moment with rapt attention
Watching the intricacy
Of each marvel unfurling

How can I have missed
So many moments
Of such consummate art
Where have I been?

Wandering distracted among thorns and brambles,
Scratched and torn by thought and doubt.

I petition for presence, for now, for here.
Remind me, remind me… less I forget.!
