Morning Breeze

You don’t have to correct the world
nor the billions of people.
The stars were placed long ago,
the weary moon constant in its track.
You just may have to let go
and give yourself
to the soft morning breeze
with its gentle hint of rain.

    thank you Don – a peaceful restful presence. I roll over, lie still, think of your poem, listen to the morning rain, breathe deep the wet earth smells – no work today

    To “let go and give yourself” IS the work – easier said than done, at all human levels. Good to have support in doing so!
