One step forward

One step forward
two steps back.

One.

The stream of enlightened awareness swells,
and radiates for a second
just to recede again,
powerless to the undertow.

Two.

A natural cadence.
A slow dance of progress and decrease.

One.

A sensuous pulse
steady
sustained
unrelenting.

Two.

Unavoidable fall back.

That’s the tempo.

Uncompromising pace.
Disheartening. Confronting.
But reverberating and rippling.

One. Two.

One. Two.

One.
