Hour 5 – The Worlds We Create

When the world we created
feels like it’s too much
I row my lifeboat out
onto the still lake
stretch out and close my eyes
look up and see the ancient light
greet me with silent beauty

When the world I’ve created
feels like it’s too much
I walk into the forest
toss myself down on bare ground
to look up at the trees
waving in the breeze too tall
for me to feel

When the world created by humans
feels like it’s too much
I sit still in the garden
watching the bees
gathering nectar
from flowers I planted
with love in my heart

Nature
at ease in its existence
reminds me
we can, I can, humans can
create
life-supporting worlds
worth living in
