A Powerful Question

What is the essential question
I must allow

may I stand in the question, straight and open, surrounded by the question

may my roots grow deep into the question

the path in, is rocky and unsure
I falter, and
I traverse this path time and again and again

called to the quiet center
where I experience the question
where I listen deeply to the question
being still, allowing it to unfold itself

it speaks to me, it works on me
it requires me to be uncomfortable

I am not sure now where it will lead me

but it is


I am
