New Year's Resolution

Don't go, just arrive.

Rest the mind in the heart.

Dissolve your pronouns in 'Thou.'

Talk to the animals.

Smile for no reason at 3 A.M.

Instead of asking,

"what have I attained?"

let everything around you

become exceedingly awake,

raindrop, silence, stars.

Discover the secret treasure

in the place where you already are

by not searching.

Breath happens.

Just arrive.

'Long Limb,' Andrew Wyeth
