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.
