Vertical Time

To understand my life, now
Is to understand vertical time
Deep columns of knowing
That arise from who knows where
My minute to minute mind is fading
No future or past to scan
But if in this moment
The thought of you arises
Like a beautiful water fountain
Gushing upward
It brings your essence
And our shared experiences
All in a moment
Then it recedes
And the right here, right now
Takes over completely
I don't control these fountains
I just enjoy them as gifts
And I trust the Universe's timing
And have faith that what is necessary
Will appear for me
In vertical bursts of insight
Intuition or creativity
Suffering needs linear time
It can't live in the fullness of now.
