When you come to

Crossroads in Life,

Of all the directions

You can choose –

Forward, backwards

Upwards, downwards,

And so on.

Do not hesitate.

Run Selfward

To who you truly are.

She pulled

Me into

The warmest embrace

And whispered:

“Let’s be friends, again.

For real this time.”

And so begins

A new adventure

With Aloneness.

What is the length

Of your love?

Wrap it twice

Around the

One that annoys

You most

And it reaches

To infinity.

Do not think on this.

Just start wrapping.

Walk onto the ocean’s chest
With your ears.
Step slowly, deeply.

Relax your other senses
Inside the pause
Between the rise and fall
Of its heartbeat.

Then let go.

Drop your heart
In the roaring invitation
To listen,
To see,
To feel,
The music of newness
In every wet.
