Late Afternoon

Late afternoon along the pier
I found a wondrous silence here
And everything became so clear
This perfect moment
In this perfect year

Such luminous clarity was mine
I felt the touch of the divine
And in my hands a truth entwined
This perfect moment
In this perfect year

Alone within this hemisphere
We float and dip in waters clear
We know not why we landed here
This perfect moment
In this perfect year

It does not matter whence we came
From world of ice or blazing flame
Or what our home or what our name
This perfect moment
In this perfect year

    Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, it is this moment, the present moment that you cherish in silence.
