18/30

we continue on
in the steady force of
Life that pushes and pulls
in the dancing of
the setting sun
And the entrance of
the rising moon
Of scorching earth
and cleansing tides
Making new in the only way
We know how;
Infinite symmetry.

Finding rhythm
embedded deep in our souls
trapped beneath
the layers of
masks and misconceptions
which we are forced to examine
Without caution

We continue on.
Patient in the
timing of shores
that trust
In the
consistency
Of the inevitable
movement
Of molecules
made to wash clean
The imperfections we
we told to pick up
along the way.

We Continue on
In the letting go
of fearful dreams
That rest in palms
Struggling to remain open.
Where the wrinkles
of our hands
Tell stories
Of opening and closing
To where our despair
rests most heavily
in the secrets of
Closed fists.

We Continue on
in stepping into each moment
Trusting in the gifts
Of life and gratitude.
Knowing that we
are nothing more or less
than creatures of earth
that live and die
to give and receive
eternal gifts
in the presence of each.

We continue on
