Whenever you think
you have it

you don’t

it cannot be had,
held or stored

open your hand
ease the grip
forget the grab
and use your
delicate fingers
tipped for touch
to sort and sift
and search

find joy in the
infinite unfolding

there is always
something more

allow a childhood
thrill to fill
the moment
and re-discover
what you already know


like a butterfly from a net

let it go
