POEMS: “No more longing”

No More Longing

Yesterday I sat beside

a pristine mountain lake

where sky and pines and water

lost their names in Seeing,

where Listening became

a single bird-song, wind song,

water-lapping song of joy.

Today, there’s no more longing,

no more pain inside the heart;

the devotee has disappeared

into the scent of Now,

and space has blown desire

from its latest hiding place

into the peace of being where I am.

Dorothy Hunt
