The poem celebrates the transformative power of immersing oneself in the natural world and letting go of internal distractions, as it leads to a rediscovery of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us, and a deeper connection to the present moment and the world at large



Lifting the Veil

No matter what’s going on inside our heads,
the life around us is always on,
pulsating and evolving
in its brilliant,
never-ending play...
so what a joy it is
to be able to join the game,
to lift the veil of our preconceived notions,
and with each moment,
to rediscover water and air,
rocks and grass,
to sway with the branches of the trees,
to dissolve into the softness of a cloud,
to lose ourselves in the endless sky,
to sparkle like a star…
