A Short Poem on Desire

The Buddha Dordenma in Paro, Bhutan, 2017

via Daily Prompt: Desire

Desire is what we wish, but may not be what we get.

Desire is hunger and yearning, but may leave us empty and anxious.

Desire is a need for something to happen in our lives, but is often met with static.

Desire is a longing for something we dream up, but never fully conceive.

Desire is best manifests when presented to us in a completely different form.

I desire to awake to what I need, not what I want.

I desire for the universe to unfold to me in its time, at its place.

I desire to recognize that time and place.
