The Miracle Of Attention

I wake up,
My mind starts thinking,
Thoughts of innumerable hues jostle for attention,
Fears, dreams, hopes, wants arise.

I walk to the basin,
I become aware of the brush and the paste,
Of them touching my teeth,
Of the foam that arises,
Of the cold water that rinses,
And splashes on my face,
The tingling feeling of the water on my body.

Makes me alive,
Makes me live in this moment.

What happens will happen,
What has happened has happened,
I can live and feel this moment.

The attention is an alchemist,
Turning drabness into delight,
Anxiety to peace
And life to love.
