Prosperity

Prosperity January 13, 2020

Living with an open heart,

all is real. And we become

briefly all that we meet.

 

I touch your sadness and I

become sad. I brush against

your wonder and I am restored.

 

But under all the sadness and

wonder, I remain who I am.

 

This is integrity, the want to

feel everything and become

nothing.

 

The orchid in the sun stretches

but remains an orchid.

 

The wave that swallows a diving

gull remains a wave.

 

So, when you dive through me,

I will let you have my all and

only grow for how we take

turns.

 

A Question to Walk With: Describe who you are under all your sadness and all your happiness.

This excerpt is from my book of poems in progress, A Thirst for Simple Light.
