Where do we belong, each and every one?
What makes our soul sing and our work dance,
what do we seek, in stillness,
So many questions and no answers,
a teacher I am not.
I love the ocean, both when it rages and smiles,
also I love the forests, meadows and rocks.
They all have their voice, clear and sincere.
As they roar and whisper their eternal truths.
Not a false note nor a lie to be heard,
no lures and baits, just joy and veracity.
The rocks join in with healing vibes.
Among these I belong, feel peace and calm,
where also birds and butterflies live.
Many cities are so beautiful, I grant you that;
In awe I visited many times.
Admired the artistry of buildings famed
of skill and design, of achievements seeming greater than man.
I love visiting these but find the noise and rush,
the tensions and fumes of the streets too much.
Although exciting pulse will attract.
All these thoughts matter, have validity,
but don’t we really belong
with those we love unconditionally
as they do us.
Know us and love us,
Just for what we are, simply you or I.
