A Longing for Humanity

May I join the dance
of sacredness
healing
wholeheartedness
the re-creative undulance of
planting, cultivation
patience, harvest,
of weeping, laughing
losing, gaining
grieving, rejoicing
stationary confinement, soaring flight?

May I join the circle of life
vulnerability
humility
resurrection
new life, seasoned maturity
tender breeze, harsh gale
drought, abundance,
transparency, reservation
alternating quiet with abandon
longing, contentment?

May I join the present space
aware
awake
alert
recognizing this day within
the repetitive sweep of history
clinging not to importance
nor dreading insignificance
beyond detachment or absorption
in holy reverence?
