The Secret of How it is to Live

the way we feel at night

(as if the secret
of how it is to live
hangs within our grasp)

sinks deep into our consciousness
and we find
with surprise and unsurprise all in one breath
that this knowing exists always
instead of exclusively in the hours
of in-between

(quiet enough to hear the clock tick
your heart move
your soul expand)

as we once believed.
It is simply easier in this time
where our lives are balanced
between dream and reality
to understand
that there is no difference
finding the meaning of life
and simply living with purpose.
