This Longing to Know You

Shambhavi offers a New Year’s poem about natural following. No resolutions. No marking time.

This Longing to Know You

This longing to know you
the river 
never stops
whose end is unknown
and known as the source.
When did I
abandon all maps,
all self-determination,
all colorful plans?
That moment is lost.
Now I just drift
in your all-encompassing touch,
this constant current,
gentle or fierce,
plays as the waters
that move me along.

~Shambhavi Sarasvati
