Working out, feeling out
where to flow
these unrelenting injustices, complex
and desperate human battles, where,
how, to apply the lessons.
Acceptance, as a journey
through process. Be like water.
You don’t have to think,
not all the time, not in the ways
you were taught
and act from love. A cog in a wheel
that you surrender, a tipping into,
part of the pattern, flip
in-outwards… act to change, here
butterfly wings, there a trick, a word play,
soft grandmother words. In energetic alchemy,
a piece, a spin. If necessary
violence, too, to feel deep, and still keep
in allowing, work
through me… get out the way!
This is a game we play, but we
are played, danced. And we each dance
the whole dance, and we are
wholly holy, each of
us. Resistance only gravel
don’t sweat it, move, sometimes
the process needs
gravel, doubt and questions
holy holy, and you, you are
made to do this
Don’t ever doubt it. Those mountains,
those oceans, desert valleys,
are no obstacle.
