Home from work, I sit by the pond,
comparing notes with its inhabitants.
I completed my To Do List;
they didn't get eaten by raccoons;
all is well.

Their pond presence reminds me
not to worry about tomorrow,
that there is only this moment,
right here, right now.
Always only this moment.

And that it is enough.
