You have been attentive, writing in your journal
Don’t hide your theoretical bent
Don’t be afraid of contradictions
Open yourself to new patterns
Your mind, with time, will find the relevance
Kindness is part of a larger universe
All of us is given a key
We only have to find it.
Arrangement of trees makes its own stories
protecting birds and refugees
a bench, a mug and thank you cards are not obsolete
they remain relevant to civility
Maybe balance is exactitude mathematically
but love can drink in a glass of gold
and remain in orbit
not oblivious of other galaxies.
note: Currently I’m reading Artful by Ali Smith and Hillbilly Elegy by J.D.Vance.
Ali Smith is becoming one of my favorite contemporary writers.
