Clearing

you-are-not-broken-small-thumbnail

 

Do not try to save

the whole world

or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create a clearing

in the dense forest

of your life

and wait there

patiently,

until the song

that is your life

falls into your own cupped hands

and you recognize and greet it.

Only then will you know

how to give yourself

to this world

so worthy of rescue.
