Listen to the Fragrance 

It’s not as cut 

and dry as you think. 

Yes, life is complex

and sometimes people

will astonish you with

willful blindness

and self-focus. 

Yes, we hear alarms clanging

and our minds and nerves quiver 

with motivating fear. 

At the same time,

a soft, gentle rain

touches the exuberant 

petals of peony

and birds continue to

rhapsodize. 

Today, right now:

Listen to the fragrance.
