The poetic city: “The Curl of the Moment”

“The Curl of the Moment”    

Now that I have accepted
that I will never know 
with any certainty 
what it’s all about, 
I am free to enjoy 
the curl of the moment. 
That’s the place that
appears every morning 
in the midst of meditation 
when Ava settles into my lap 
and I follow the purr of her presence 
into the heart of my breath. 
Nestling into the curl of the moment 
allows me to give up the desire 
for knowledge in exchange
for the experience of 
certainty that all is one
