Imagine My Surprise, by David Whyte

Imagine my surprise,
sitting a full hour
in silent and irremediable
fear in the world

to find the body
forgetting
its own fear the instant
it opened and placed
its unassuming hands
on life’s enduring pain

and the world for one
moment
closed its terrifying eyes
in gratitude

saying,
“This is my body, I am found.”
