My enthusiasm to create a masterpiece
has dwindled to a languid float
down the lazy river, round and round,
just enough motion to deceive me.
Perhaps I really am going somewhere.
Today I break my fast even though
my system still teeters, imbalanced,
inflamed skin so ready to instruct me
if only I notice. Make a note
in my chart. This new moon in Virgo
changes everything. I step back
into the invisible waters and wash
away the fear so carefully programmed
into the interstitial spaces between my
cells. Step forward with intention
filling the emptiness now with love.
From the cliffs I strain to see
the mainstream cutting a deadly
popular chasm hurtling toward doom.
Nothing is as it seems. I let go
of these manmade possessions and my
true heritage appears, undulating under
the plastic bits of a thoughtless legacy,
greed and the incomprehensible notion
that we are separate and wanting.
This mighty song of infinity resonates
in each drop of dew. My neighbor’s bonfire
moves me indoors. Every act matters.
We touch each other’s fields whether
we notice or push by with insensitive
force. The air rings with our true
being. We wake and sing together.
We create wellness in this exact
moment of connection.
