they press and pressure us to look up and out of ourselves
to see the beauty around us and feel the embrace of living.
in our hearts and our minds,
if we breathe and release the trepidation,
we are awashed with a light so pure
and a lightness so gentle
that our heads are enveloped by the starry constellation itself
impressing upon us its blossoming wisdom
with hearts open as waterfalls of expression
and feet lightly touching the Earth’s nature invigorating dance
and the impulse to move forward.
Lightly seeing, light-filled walking, life overflowing.
touching this life and light
holding it like I held before
beholding its majesty and presence….
this light, this life, this living wisdom.
imaginations like small birds flocking
and a delicate intuition that has paid its price
for learning the ways to ever enliven a life worth living.
