POEM: Spacious Awareness

By Christi Ortiz

Spacious Awareness 
like the eagle’s perch 
provides the bird’s eye view

I embrace the Stillness
like a warm blanket, a magnificent sunset, 
a hug from a cherished loved one

I allow it to envelop me 
in its sweet surrender 
and carry away any remnants of self or worry or or or….

I breathe into the Now
I am at once nothing 
and everything

I embrace everything and all things 
just as I too am embraced 
by the All

It is enough
is all there is

Like an eagle’s perch,
Spacious Awareness invites me into Her grandeur 
to be emptied into it, never to return

I breathe the stillness 
and smile
It is enough
