The Sky Will Help
Be near to what is alive
but cannot diminish itself with talk.
The sky will help;
it is large enough to extinguish your questions.
The trees know what to do;
follow their lead.
Heaven's frequency is not unfamiliar;
it is one you have always known, but perhaps lost
beneath layers of dogma
No, it is not a leap of the imagination,
nor a contortion of the mind;
but an opening, an awareness,
a realisation, an acceptance.
