Grasp

I hold onto being held –

let go without letting go.

Happiness is within reach

of open palm and spread arms

 

A closed hand makes a clenched fist,

which neither points or picks up

An extended hand shares life –

halving sorrows and doubling joy.

 

Embrace the Force that’s with us –

God’s presence is always present

Love is touching and feeling;

and hugging is hearts kissing.

 

The trees have leafy branches –

Elephants have flexing trunks –

Whales have soft underbellies –

All embrace our Mother’s love.

 

So to be heard listen well,

to be seen look carefully,

to be touched grasp intently,

to be loved share grace and peace.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
