Acknowledgement, by Richard Harmer

1 minute read


There is a softness I feel

being present to those who sit with me

we are together, exploring

the pathways of our aloneness and our togetherness.


There is a sweetness in this moment

witnessing each other being fully alive

and with a breath just loud enough for that breath to hear

I acknowledge to myself … to us: 

I see you, just as I know that you see me. 

You are not alone in your experience of this moment.”
