Dying fruitfully

Elders find something is dying
—Principally themselves!—
This propels them
Through fear and excitement
Into the fruitful chaos

Footprints in the Windsm # 1711–Give us, elder

Give us, elder,

a dozen or more generations
no answers to shorten our efforts
we need deeper to dig
though love and big picture point
we, we must try our souls

Last puzzle piece

Maybe you have the last puzzle piece
To enable us to see
What was invisible until now

Echoing

Resonating
Vibrating at the self-same rhythms
Community, spirit, your soul, and ego
And the world responds,
Echoing
