If today is everyday
it is forever.
|The Hillside, photo by Meg|
Today we meet on this endless hillside,
valley and peaks in the distance.
Today the eternal sun warms our bodies and hearts,
safe from uncertainty and resistance.
Today we see the beauty, hidden in life’s bustle,
Fair and handsome, beauty insistent.
Today, we listen, to each other;
“I love you”, persistant.
Today, the love found, discovered, recovered,
No longer distant.
When love continues to warm, to discover, to speak, to listen,
When the endless hillside is us.
And the valleys and mountains are us,
And the calm and the beauty are us.
Today is everyday, forever.
