When Looking for Love

A poem on transforming longing.

When you find yourself
looking for love, 
searching
scrolling
for next best thing
never arriving — 
rather just be 
here
exactly this shape
perfectly landing.

Rather than looking
for love, 
be in love.
See the ways you already are
now, within love 
swimming 
seamlessly 
in this beauty-drenched world
beckoning 
play, delight
savoring each taste, 
fully arrived. 

Be in love 
here in this place, 
even when longing
for more or different. 
Lean long
into this yearning
let it become
light shining 
into wide orbit:
not seeking,
residing in love—
being
love
giving forth
what you most need, 
what is also most needed
bringing grace to this world
with your own 
deepest
heart.
