Na Po Wri Mo – April 6 2023

Day 6 asked that we search for a poem in another language, absorb the ‘sound and shape of the words’ and use this as a basis for a poem.

Here is my offering:

How to Be 

In this world, always be you

I say to myself. 

Pause often 

to observe what arises.

Be aware, keeping a gentle

gaze upon someone’s smouldering eye.

Let arising thoughts float 

by like clouds in the sky.

Drink deeply to nourish 

your body-mind and soul.

You are infinite, everlasting 

and real, your true self.

Don’t say ‘I am scared’,

just breathe and Be.
