Are You Being Here Now ?
Author: Pondering Red


you lounge about
and around your space,
your bountiful, luxurious, natural space

all you ever wanted
worked for
or is it ?

snuggled in the valley of huge mountains,
lush grasses and apple orchards,
the mists from the monsoon rains greet you

a picture of tranquility

breathe in the serenity
of just being
of being with others of like mind
of being mindful in every single moment

of living in the here and now
the eternal now
of seeking bliss and
finding blissful moments

where do you hide your fears,
memories of the past ?

are they selective ?
are some buried in the deep corners of your mind ?
do you think of old friends and lovers,
ever ?
sometimes ?
never ?

a Shangri La setting,
is that possible ?
