You Have Already Arrived

go for the walk 
that does not 
take you 
farther away 
but rather brings 
you to the present

you have already arrived 
at this destination

so let your Ordinary Mind 
reside there for a while 
instead of the past 
or the unwritten future

what do you see in this place? 
touch, taste?
what sounds and smells envelop you?

are all the things 
that exist in your presence
