In the moment be here now

Stay present let it teach you how

Listen carefully be with what’s here

Allow connections to take away fear


Honor experience in this moment

Your life always own it

Life’s not future or past

Right now’s all that last


Limit discourage of yesterday’s rain

Clouds quickly pass stay present remain

Secret freedom to a rich life

Present mindfulness eliminates strife


Dancing only one foot then another

No thinking about what you rather

Buddha says focus stay clear

Present each day you have a year


Can’t like what you have here

Not likely desires will bring good cheer

Clear as a bell honor your essence

Maintain awareness celebrate presence


Can you center yourself in the present, be a listener in

service of yourself and others, observing your now?
