Presence

Foto by Jason Weaver, 2017

To attain presence
one should surrender to form,
as practice, as norm,
one should submit oneself to
the essence of unaffectedly being,
inhabit a habit
of nonexpectantly seeing–
one must plumb the fields
of depths and shallows,
succumb to the yields
of lights and shadows, and
become, solely (soul-ly)
become —
not what one wants or tries
or desires to be, but rather
what one IS
already,
naturally
