Risky Paths

It is okay to see the risk

And not step

Fully

Into it.

Courage does not always

Mean

Precarious

Heaving ho.

Perilous paths

Indeed at times

Need forging,

But aren’t

All

Tests of

True bravery,

When often enough

The careful way

Around

Is a daring

Opportunity.

What thoughts are swathed

Under your wrap?

What life

What pain

Your brows speak of?

Your eyes avert

But hearts respond:

You’re seen

You’re heard

Becloaked or not.

Believe we can.

Believe we will.

Believe the way is there

Still,

To achieve.

Believe good lasts.

Believe hearts care.

Believe compassion

Matters,

Everywhere.

World Genius

There’s a brilliance

To the cosmos

That shines brighter than

All stars.

An artistry

To nature’s glory

That far exceeds anything

I can actually

Understand.

In spite of crowded quarters

There evidently is a draw

To hanging

One’s own nest

In environs of unquestioned

Popularity.

Coincidence of Fate

You are no accident.

This time.

This place.

Your presence is

If not pre-ordained

Then an absolute responsibility,

Manifesting

With each moment

Every action

Of said and unsaid,

In a remarkable

Synchronicity

For opportunity

And fate.

On This Planet

Every day I am reminded

How very partial I am

To the multitudes of

Living things

Upon this Earth.

They are all part of me

Just as I am part of all.

You see,

Our air has been

A zillion times recycled

Through innumerable breaths.

Each drop of water has been

In every ocean

Swam in every river

Rained on every land.

Molecules have merged into our very selves

From all that is around us.

Life has birthed and died and birthed

Repeatedly

So many times

That we are indeed

Essentially

Not just of one planet

But all One.
