Nothing Still Waiting

Sitting together in the midst of the mystery,
we’re looking out through mystery’s eyes,
lost in the pure astonishment of you and I
appearing here before each other now —
no less a miracle than the appearance
of anything anywhere at all!

Speechless in this startling shock of being,
with no need or motive to accept or reject
or to have any of it be anything other than
just what it is, as it is, we face each other
in utter amazement, and from the heart
a loving smile beams outward, expanding
in every direction, brightening and deepening,
outshining any sense of anything but itself,
an innocent happiness, recognizing itself
as nothing more or less than this:

this breathing world, these infinite forms,
these simple fingers lovingly entwined,
warm blood surging beneath our skin,
this skin enrobing tiny nerves and muscles
in these mysteries called hands, “our” hands,
so gently held together now near the fire,
with nothing still waiting to be understood.
