start close in

start close in

note to self

this is the root of
what we have—
most present
most precious
but never rare—
but seldom noticed
by all but a few

is not contained
in our bodies
bodies are held
in consciousness
it pours through
vast, unbounded
infinite and eternal—
start close in
live close in

thank you to David Whyte for the phrase “start close in.”

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—they may never turn into anything more or they might flower.
