In a

firefly's yawn

of

I was - I am - I will
be
nothing
an atom
a chemical
an amoeba
a sperm or egg
an orgasm
a conception
an embryo
a fetus
an howling birth
an infant awe
an adolescent ebullition
an adult wariness
an aged bewilderment
a death silence
nothing
or eons before the Big Bang
through
the present tense
and onto
a red shift in the next millennium

all things change

but what does not change
in the gifted realization
of an held breath's perception of a spec of light
is
the boundless fathomless and selfless
moment of sensuous presence
of the no-mind
present moment
