A Purposeless Moment

I am only in this moment
breathing and walking
my mind quiet

Roads bordered with pastures
sheep grazing
bodies moving slowly
I am like the sheep
purposeless in this moment
and it frees me

I am only here

Blue skies above
green trees below
mountains linking the two
rich cedar in my nose
carried by a warm wind

The wind sways the branches
leaves applaud
their hands
like a running river
an ebb and flow
like the heartbeat of the universe

The forest breathes
exhaling songs of birds

The sun has a Midas touch
turning the forest
from green to gold

We look down on a life
without purpose
but maybe
we need more purposeless moments
to simply
enjoy existing
