how many breaths does one need to feel the fullness of life
how many sunrises to see the glory of a new day
how many sunsets to revel in light's beauty
how many blooms to see the bounty of The Way
how many words to heed the knowing of the heart
how many shadows to know light's quest
how many sorrows to reach life's joy
how many lifetimes for love's behest
this alchemy this vow
blessed be this breath
this moment, this Now.
