Connected Life

Collecting within making it harder to stand
tall there is a beauty to this focused state
that magnifies a heartbeat
giving pause to those who really ask
when you let them into your storm soaked thoughts
and if you are present enough
to see from a perspective within your own heart connected
spinning like a wheel sending each spoke wide
with truth love memories hope strength wisdom peace connection and trust
out effortlessly out
into everyone out without question out
into all you come across in your mind or physically touching
it is clear as the rain falling down today
there is always enough to go around
so spread it thick and loud with grace
and light into the beautiful universal abyss
of this interconnected web of life

  1. Such important, visible connections in the photograph, the title, the words of your poem, Carrie. the ideas of many spokes, each a worthy and necessary quality, spinning out to create interconnected life is compelling, and the line …”this focused state that magnifies a heartbeat giving pause to those who really ask when you let them into your storm soaked thoughts” went straight to my heart.

    1. Your comment is so appreciated, Janet. This concept, that each of us have the gift to generate and extend these worthy and necessary qualities beyond our own heart, family circle, community, country and beyond inspires me. If feel this is a time for such knowing and I love that you give me the gift of feeling my words and sharing where you went with them. Thank you!
