Tiredness flows down the limbs and joints,
draining and sucking
life’s vitality until raw bones emerge.
It is time to gather the bones
that can lead anywhere.
The journey has been long.
Now we must recognize,
our heart above everything.
that I can truly call I.
Not the ego or the part that thinks it is me.
But that space, that emptiness
that says I.
How to move forward?
When everything around crumbles,
what remains has always been there.
The source of creation
has always been beating away quietly
within our hearts.
Pause and listen to it sing.
