Year of Softness

Here is 2018’s New Year’s poem. At a time of so much creating separation, aggressive culture, and entitlement, what we need is softness.  Breathe in this poem.

Year of softness
New Year 2018

Year of softness,
softness of heart
and softness of home.
A plush bed
to snuggle deep in love,
a plush heart
that sees the world
through curiosity,
compassion, and humility
before fear
and without entitlement.

With softness,
we are observers of change
letting change flow to
and around us.
Letting our losses
open a space
for what we did not know
we wanted.

Softness blurs edges,
making the world
one seamless work of art,
an interdependent web,
a cycle,
a Ferris wheel we ride
together sharing the views.

It is softness,
it is love that cushions the ride
smoothing out the bumps
over the distances of life’s turnings
always knowing the next corner
may bring a mountain-top vista
where we relish our integral part
of the grand whole.
