Let it open and close, and
Allow the blood to flow.
Let me choose Love
While this physiology does
What it does.
For I have no control about the breath.
Ultimately, it breathes for me;
Ultimately, I am grateful
For nature’s nurturing, and for
For Rivers that don’t need anyone’s
For mountains that do not require
Mankind’s hands to pile up the earth, nor
Organize themselves unto this mission.
For Sun, the Moon, and all the planetary transits
The mighty clock of heaven knows that
Greater places exist beyond us, while coming from
Within Us –
emanations from a cosmic heart beat.
For I know, Existence, you are
Holding my life in your hands.
