Clearing

Sometimes you come across a poem and it resonates with where we are. We can worry, and fret, or we can embrace the now … and wait for direction to come to us. A baby step, a thought, a possibility. That could be enough, for now.


Do not try to save

The whole world

Or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create

A clearing

In the dense forest

Of your life

And wait

Patiently there,

Until the song

That is your life

Falls into your own

cupped hands

and you recognize

and greet it.

Only then will you know

How to give yourself

To this world

So worthy of rescue.

– Martha Postlethwaite
