Free Will

Choose to wander in wonder.

 

Choose to live by exploration not

through another.

 

Choose to perform selfless acts to

find yourself.

 

Choose the greatest force—

that is Love.


Quietude

 

He led me to this very second—

the hands ticked

to this very moment

where I now sit in peace.

 

I am his piece of time.

 

The sands

of the hourglass,

calm and resting,

now

in the dawn

of another

Texas day.

 

The trees

with their green, green leaves

watch with such poise that

I simply don’t know what to say back.

 

The mosquitoes greet this

new, flushed skin

with such vigor, that

the animals just let them

run in their rivers.

 

 

Criss-crossed and bent over,

I sit and ponder

Nothing.

 

My mind speaks

nothing:

And it is in these rare occasions of

              quietude—

in this natural,

 surround-sound

       system—

   that I love so much.


Humility

 

We are all flowers;

We need not

Compete for sunlight.
