A Lesson on Perspective


Allowing yourself to see beyond the borders

and lines of those who have traveled before

you knew to embark on the riddled journey

of self discovery and endless unknown


A humble version, perspective is the way you see the interaction

of the world around you rising and falling

mixing and connecting

meeting and knowing

loving and not


It is so much more

and so much less than what we perceive as knowing or not;

a radically episodical undulating of rooting down and growing up

while periodically vanishing into a spiraling helix of cosmic shine


There is no easy way to travel

deep into the wilds of the ticking

that pulls on your heart strings

in the way that allows your voice to travel from mountain top to canyon bottom


It is a tragically beautiful re-birth

of mineral to stone

stone to metal

and art on one’s body


There is something so beautiful about the way a smile

caresses a woman’s delicate nature

of desiring to nurture those around her

nest she builds as her sanctuary


It is a way to see the world

come together to create something

so much more that it could ever

imagine to be on its’ own


Yes,  perspective is so much more

than the words I have to describe the

interconnectedness of this wild

web of life I have spun


Lessons are life’s beautiful gifts

of taking that path of darkness

and leading it into the world of the

most unimaginably splendid light.
