Nothing Big

pink tulips

Who can say what it is

to live one’s life well?

No one but you.

You need not

look around

at others,

for they

are not you,

and only you

love what you love

in the way

that you do.


When I learned

to sit still and notice

my thoughts

and feelings

through the doorway

of my heart –

changing nothing

doing nothing –

calling to the force

that moves

my soul,

love became

the one true yearning.


Loving life

can be

that quiet.

That simple.

That still.

Nothing big.

Big as life.
