Asking, Having, Saying

Asking, Having, Saying December 27, 2010

What would you ask if you

had the chance? Would you

trade that asking for what opens

on the top of a hill when no one’s

looking and the clouds give up and

the light makes you and I remember

all that we were born with?

What would you have if you

could have anything? Would you

give that away to feel the peace

drifting in the center?

What would you say to those

yet to come? Would you say, “I

don’t know” and be the earth in

which they plant what will

feed the souls not yet born?
