Sunlight on breaking waves

There is a presence in nature;
a beingness that doesn’t allow for worry or procrastination;
a doingness that honours the moment with its full attention.
We could learn a lot from nature;
us humans with our capacity to self-reflect, to worry about the past and the future, to think about what might be and what might have been and miss the moment that is –
the magnificent moment of now!
And now I laugh, because without self-reflection this poem would not exist;
but then again, it would not need to.
