Divine Isness

Exodus 3
To treasure the past
or regret it,
and to hope for the yet unborn,
is one thing.

And to be true to the present moment
is another;
to find and to delight
in the Divine Isness,
the Holy in precise, particular,
horrifying and hilarious things;
in sea-scape
and in a red kangaroo paw,
a protea,
a Xanthera glistening in the rain;
in tasting a hot roast
as the cold winds shake droplets
from the eucalypts
and moan their song in the rafters;
in a momentary pausing
and, in the loving,
be held.
