We are so afraid of death
we surrender the adventure!
Somehow for some reason
or no reason at all
we choose to choose what we think of as safety
when in truth we are really choosing
Fear is running our lives
fear is what builds skyscrapers made of insurance policies
that are meant to assuage our fears but,
Fear is what we’ve been taught,
not on purpose
cause we all know
parents love and they/we do the best we can
and all the rest but
we cannot teach what we cannot reach,
and fear my friends
is far from light,
and light is what all life reaches for.

JUST BY OPENING
I was told to read something spiritual everyday
So I reached for Rumi but stopped-
A dog barked,
a crow squawked,
I stood and walked into the wild green world before me.
Why read poetry when you are
Surrounded by poetry?
Why read poetry when you can
Become a poem yourself
In an instant just by opening to the world around you.
