She Sees: A Motion through a Glass Eye
“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”
I’d love to stop acting so small,
I have to deal with tiny details.
I need to become the tiny detail to understand it,
“Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own.”
― Adam Lindsay Gordon
Froth and bubble,
that I can do,
as I move through.
“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”
― Albert Schweitzer
What he said.
Or the see-saw of your flame,
“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.”
― E.E. Cummings
Whatever our particular sea may be.
Just keep going,
no feeling is final,
every motion leads us forwards,
