Courage & Community

img_0234

I veer,

towards lists,

towards black and white.

Towards making things right.

I make a straight line,

out of natural curves,

to try,

to fly

without wings.

But life

Requires something else,

A courage,

Stepping out,

Making friends with Death.

And don’t forget

the people,

the community of things

In disarray,

that came before,

Messy,

along the way,

And still to come.

In other words

Life

in all its shades

of grey.

Courage…

and Community,

I say.
