Be Present

We see trees in their external fashions,
with their artless beauty striving for light.
We witness our thoughts, feelings and actions,
with raw incitement striving for insight.

Within both are hidden root and motive
that do nourish all manifestation.
Roots unseen, root down for water, and give
life. Hidden tendencies host true person.

To concurrently realize both, to poise
the mind, at the convergence of a point
on a line, is to experience joys
tree of life and knowledge conjoined anoint.

To be thus present to self quite concise,
is present to self of pearl beyond price.
