Do not resist them.
Only go around
And around and around...
Eventually go over
Go through

Carry the rock away
Atoms at a time
Over time

The soft space
That replaces the rock

Will respond to the light,
To life
And there will emerge

In the still space
One lily
Crisp and white
And open to the sun

A small sun
In itself
Its yellow core

Promising life again
As the lily anchors itself
To the earth.

Only give it time.


  1. This is really a fine fine poem that reminds me of Hawaiian creation stories! <3
