I'm so grateful to have friends:a lotus bud two clear eyes a smile a comradely arm around my shoulder a vibrant breathing hug tears together.
I'm so grateful to be alone: crickets in the darkening grass a walk among pine trees with the ocean's pulse or the silent early dawn. Ah! To exchange, to flow . . . and to rest in the center To walk with peace within chaos.
