Everyone Needs a Soft Place to Land



(Written a few years back)



everyone needs a soft place to land

and as we head in this downward fashion

toward that which embraces and muffles

the fall


we find


domicile that encircles and rejoices in our homecoming


vast meadow that

buzzes

with an awakening spring

flowers and bees

birds and trees

whirling and dancing to

nature's exquisite

syncopation


cityscape which exudes activity

of another kind

but no less poignant

in its hustle and bustle

of human endeavor


oceanic vistas of unimaginable

breadth and depth

containing a universe

of aquatic beauty and

fluency


innumerable stars above

evincing a cosmos

that dances and sings

to the beat of that same

tempo


indicated by


buzzing bee and hummingbird

darting among and partaking in

floral array


and


the skipping child who delights in a new day


and finally and most pivotally


the great heart


that calls to you


and indicates

the constant home you have


within


pure consciousness

that is one and the same with


all that is


so

find that pillow fragrant


with the scent of

lavender and rose


that expanse that softens

the landing

and is happy

in your arrival


for


everyone needs


a soft place


to land
