(Before It's News)

“Boundaries”

“The universe does not revolve around you.
The stars and planets spinning
through the ballroom of space
dance with one another
quite outside of your small life.
You cannot hold gravity or seasons;

 even air and water
inevitably evade your grasp.
Why not, then, let go?

You could move through time
like a shark through water,
neither restless or ceasing,
absorbed in and absorbing the native element.
Why pretend you can do otherwise?
The world comes in at every pore,
mixes in your blood before
breath releases you into the world again. 

 Did you think the fragile boundary of your skin
could build a wall?

Listen. 

Every molecule is humming its particular pitch.
Of course you are a symphony.
Whose tune do you think the planets are singing
as they dance?”

~ Lynn Ungar, “Blessing the Bread”
