Suddenly

SUDDENLY

August 19, 2019
Nogal House
Indian Divide, New Mexico

Suddenly…….

And then suddenly
I arrive
At this place
Where nothing else
Matters
But my own sanity
And completion
Where material things
Are irrelevant
Except for the fact
Of the immediate
Necessities

Of course
One must have lived
A similar
Existence
For the better part
Of her life
To truly have
The freedom
To exercise
This
Though there are others
Who have not
And still defected
But the principle
Of
No harm
No foul
Then
Comes into play

Even then
If one has
So few
Connections
To conventional
Wisdom
To direct
Their course
There are still
The necessities
Of ones’ own
Moral compass
There are debts
To be paid
And commitments
To be met
But something inside
Of me
Has severed
And the approach
Will be altered
Going forward

What is more
Precious
Than the satisfaction
Of ones
Deepest
Desires
So long as
They are rooted
In sound judgement
What else
Is more important
Than the simple joy
Of true happiness
And serenity

In my case
There is no other
True need
Nor desire
To be filled
And the chance
To just
Find stillness
Means more
Than any
Material wealth
Or gain
That can be offered

Suddenly
This all became
So clear
A brief rain
On a cool
Summers day
The soft howl
Of the wind
Off the mountainside
The utter silence
Of the moment
Here
On the hillside
In utter solitude
The brief absence
Of necessity
Or distraction
Suddenly………..
