I have been getting intimate with the voice of my intuition
searching what it offers me with open curiosity
I have been trusting that I know more than I think
and that no hands could be kinder to me
than my own.
I have been exploring the never ending Universe inside
looking at the brightest star in my mind’s eye
and thinking of how one day it will die;
remembering they, too
have destinies of their own;
they, too are in search of answers they cannot find
amidst all the blinding light.
In the end we return to where we started
revert bones to dust as our fears and hopes
seep into sacred earth and fertilize the next generation
who will also stand perplexed at the absurd vastness of life
and wonder why
instead of accepting that
the question we should be asking is
h o w.
