It takes time to learn carpentry; algebra;
to build bridges; plant a vineyard; fly to the moon.
But to live simply and joyfully, to be kind,
to breathe deeply, love, and be free, time is not needed at all.
Peace is not a matter of identity, struggle, or effort;
ask any tree or ever-changing cloud.
You are here; the date, the hour, need not be recorded;
the world need not be told; it already knows.
