It is for the same reason that I slow my steps in thick, green grass
Being careful not to tread upon the caterpillar just beyond the dandelion.
I am not separate from you
Or from the blue iris against the white fence.
We are each learning that
As time unfolds
And the appropriate resources appear
We will transform into our most splendid selves.
I have realized that like the sparrow
I, too, cannot silence my intrinsic song –
The song that encourages all to manifest
Their unique and beautiful lives
And discover true happiness.
