Shared Presence

By Amba Gale

May we be with one another,
touch our souls, one to one,
slowing as we circle in a dance
where our hearts beat as one.

No breath separates us here,
no clashing of the swords

nor wielding of the shields
in defensiveness, divisiveness, pretense, and argument.

Only the peace and compassion that comes
from a well of deep Understanding,
of listening to one another’s heartbreak,
of knowing the purity of Speaking and Being
that comes from listening from love.

Dancing in the water, the bright orange sun winks at me through the branches of the pine. The ceiling falling is nothing, being present to such beauty.
