Here and Now

There is no need to see the horizon ahead

Because here and now, there is hope

Love lifting our tired shoulders

Even as the way before us disintegrates.

There is no need to know what will be

Because here, in this wondrous moment,

There is peace settling into our souls

Even as tomorrow begins to unfold.

There is no need to fear the elusive unknowns

Because now, in the present, we are alive

Showing up with strong, resilient hearts

Even as the shadows tremble and quake.
