The Land Before Time ~ Humans are much more than bodies. In fact, all bodies go deeper than fact. All life is weirder than fiction. You know there’s a second key, right? Behind the eyes is kingdom mind and it is mine. And it is ours. On Earth we have hours, and then sweet whisp to cloud smoke. Once again, I be gone. Once again, here is I. For now. For all. Mourning is a verb; it lingers longer, if I will not hear. It’s wise to cry out our eyes. To feel what is, our prize. It is scary to face what we are. To share that with others, can be quite the leap. But jump on young buck! The bird which risks no flight will never befriend the sky. Courage is inside you. You have what it takes to be you. If it knows, it will sing. It burns when it goes deep. To give, is supreme. Look at all that has been given to we. The inspired mad-one, the grey wolf, the civil savage, the grizzled bear; poetry is in their he(art). As far as I can see, all is Art. All are free to be, we. Letting go of the illusion of control. The honesty of wild things lives in me. (MRH, 2021)
