Please enjoy this poem by JoHanna Hartwig.
Oh sweet one, why do you wander
aimlessly in the darkness through
the rooms of your mind?
Do you not see the glimpses of Light
from the Sun’s porch?
Why continue to shuffle from
side to side
in a ballroom with no music?
Do you not hear the rapturous Sound
of the Divine orchestra tuning up?
Run! Run to the inner window!
Draw back the heavy drapes!
Behold verdant meadows and glens,
azure skies and gently rolling hills!
Hear the sweet melodies of your
own unfinished symphony!
Be brave! Be courageous!
Be as a young child!
Go grab that chair in the corner,
climb out that window…
Run! Run up that Path on the hill
simply disappear into the thunderous
Light and Sound.
Why not today, Love?
