What Will Draw Me

What will draw me

from the unleavened mass,

to rise beyond the rigid shape

and rule of expectation

to one breath of air,

one glimpse of daylight

and the knowledge so rare

of freedom.

    Perfect Don. To rise above the cultural catechism that binds, the cargo cult behavior that stifles… the only path to freedom.

    My response..

    Suspended I am
    Between the self indulgence of self
    And insignificance in a vast universe

    And, there’s only one answer, my friend, and we know what it is……Life, beautiful, pure, abundant life…… always, in every moment, offering an invitation like no other………….Thankfulness fills me now. Just lovely, Don……..

    Don, Your last few poems have touched on such beauty of the natural world. They are helpful for me in this time of need.

    Understood. When mechanisms of the human mind break down…

    As I draw my next breath… and another… and another… I am reminded of my morning prayer… thank you, Creator, for the breath of life… and thank you, Don, for the remembrance.
