known and unknown

mjd - 2015

all is not known to us.

not at once
not without work

and that is fine.

where would the wonder reside
if everything were easy,
were obvious?

mjd - 2015

where would the desire
to become our best 
and highest 
come from 
if there were no obstacles 
to surmount?

mjd - 2015

how indeed 
could we relate to each other -
understand another's joy
another's pain
another's fear?

mjd - 2015

there is something infinite that connects us all
something we can touch
something we can feel
something we can apply ourselves to
for the betterment of all.

earth laughs in flowers

mjd - 2015

emerson personified the earth
and told us that it laughs in flowers.

with our eyes and heart open 
we also bear witness to it

dancing in leaves
singing in whistling winds
dreaming in clouds
creating in the webs of spiders
sheltering in oaks
soothing in falling rains. 

how fortunate we are to be alive.
