In the Now, I Am...
Here. Alone - always present,
I await myself.

Contemplating Mind,
Examining all facets,
with the help of time.

Eternal project,
undertaken by many,
understood by One.

I Am here to teach,
for, only through you - I learn,
the meaning of Self.

For I have lost all,
in an ocean of nothing -

only to atone -

in an ocean of nothing.
For I have lost all.

The meaning of Self,
for, only through You - I learn.
I am here to teach.

Understood by One,
undertaken by many -
eternal project.

With the help of Time
Examining all facets,
contemplating Mind.

I await MySelf
Here. Alone - always present.
In the Now, I Am!

This is a nice piece. I enjoyed the palindromatic form. Good work. I wonder if you intended to go for the palindrome, or if you noticed that it was there after you finished the first half?

I write haiku often always around this sort of theme, a seeking of understanding the nature of self in infinite possibility.

On others I wrote, several people had commented that they liked that they could read my Haiku in any order, forward, backward or out of order and they all still made sense - so I wrote this one then just folded it out and it worked well as a palindrome, so I left it that way.
