Seva

Your presence awakens
my presence.
This is the seva
deeper than doing,
leading the stranger home.
The Self is waiting
in a flower's stillness,
a cloud's silence,
the folding and unfolding
of moth wings,
the gentle pulse
of breathing...
Ancient healers,
powerful guides.
Learn from them to green
the earth again
and help me see.
