Tiredness flows down the limbs and joints,

draining and sucking

life’s vitality until raw bones emerge.

It is time to gather the bones

and read

the signs;

that can lead anywhere.

The journey has been long.

Now we must recognize,

and choose

our heart above everything.

That space

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?

Listen.

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.
