Kind promise: I will open to each moment

Painting In this moment
I am surrounded
by beauty
colors and images
I have chosen
to be with me
as I work

In this moment
there is pain
in my left knee
a slow burn
that breaks through
my concentration
when it flames

In this moment
every moment
I have a choice:
beauty or pain?
To which do I attend?
Open to all
Lean towards life
