Endurance


I look at this world
With deepened eyes
Through the fear, sorrow
Wonderment and love,
Curiosity.

It touches me so very deep
All that it is, all that I feel
All that we share
Coexisting in dreams,
Sharing.

As each being makes choices
The ambiance resonates
A universal flow of change
We live and learn,
Knowledge.

We become a wall
Standing up to the wind
Beaten by the elements
To fall apart stone by stone,
Ruins.

We become a tree
Allowing the wind to blow through
Changing with the seasons
Accepting the adversity and change,
Maturing.

I feel the wind touching me
The breeze flowing through my being
As a flute being played
A song of love,
Enduring.
