ebbing and flowing

everything is always in motion
movement is the nature of all existence
even in stillness
there is extraordinary yet subtle movement
and life is waving
the wave comes in and goes out
like the ocean
and so do you
some days it is all right there
and other days it is all so absent

the wise one
allows this coming and going
knowing that what ebbs away

all things living
are in a constant state
of ebbing and flowing
but the mind just wants one thing
it wants the flowing
and resists the ebbing

the wise one
allows it all.
