Take a Moment. Poetry and Art by Rich Okun

Let Me Be Love

Here and now,

in this place,

I am just a collage,

an ever-changing host

for the colorful array

of my imaginings,

and the body

for the vast collection,

of every one of my

thoughts and feelings.

I act and react,

by my rememberings,

and express views

tinted by the backstory

of my worldly dealings.

Effortlessly donning

unique motifs,

my life is an amalgam

of  the totality of my beliefs.

And I can only see

what I let in

through senses

that are highly attuned to

my inner patterns.

Filtering all that I have

ever been,

and stored away,

in the dark of my

terrestrial caverns.

If it is true,

that I am the whole

of my ways and means,

then let me choose wisely,

and rise above,

and let me,

now, and forevermore,

divinely be,
