    Beginnings:

    I ‘ve packed and repacked
    I’m sure I have left something out
    I have been longing to go somewhere
    And now I am on my way
    My feet carry me away

    Wandering:

    My feet carry me away
    From here to there,
    And then back again.
    Within this vast universe,
    There is no place that is not my home.

    Adventure:

    There is no place that is not my home,
    There is no I, it or them.
    Road unseen and destination unknown,
    Every breath another step,
    In this journey we call life.

    Obstacles

    In this journey we call life
    There is no easy road
    Find a way over, around or through
    Keep moving upward and forward
    Don’t forget to enjoy the view.

    Scenery

    Don’t forget to enjoy the view.
    Views of blooming blossoms or cawing crows,
    Of dead trees, or of silent rocks.
    Each scene is like a small stream:
    Ever-flowing, ever-changing.

    Small Stream

    Ever-flowing, ever-changing,
    Bubbling over slick stone and swirling around bends,
    I am pulled along in the current.
    One last drop and tumble,
    Stilled by the embrace of a placid lake.

    Rest

    Stilled by the embrace of a placid lake
    I sink slowly down through the world
    To a dark and quiet place
    at center of me that is
    separate from the world

    Encounter

    Separate from the world,
    We hunker down with our naked self.
    What mysteries could we learn,
    What wonders could we encounter,
    If we knew what questions to ask?

    Conversation

    If we knew what questions to ask?
    What answers would be revealed,
    By words both spoken and silent:
    Of the world within myself,
    Of the world between you and I.

    Friendship

    Of the world between you and I
    There remains a gulf as wide as the sea
    If we could bridge it with kindness
    Understanding and tolerance, in thoughts and deeds
    It feels like something much deeper

    11. Love

    It feels like something much deeper,
    Something which transcends time and space,
    Something which links heart to heart,
    And connects us mind to mind–
    Alas.
