Consequences

Dreaming dreams and seeing visions

transfigures us anew.

Embrace the change

and never be the same.

Due… to unintended consequences

it is futile to plan.

No matter how careful we are,

life happens and goes awry.

Prepare we must for needs and wants,

but not for a harvest.

we must cultivate space and time

to share and not hoard.

Cooperation is essential –

In order to share,

we must be intent on listening

and make all welcome.

We cannot fix but we can mend.

Accepting possibilities

and recognizing our differences

is integral to our wholeness.

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
