All about Perspective

"Everything is waiting for you"


your great mistake

is to act the drama

as if you were alone

as if life were a progressive and cunning crime

with no witness to the tiny hidden transgressions

to feel abandoned

is to deny the intimacy

of your surroundings


even you have felt

the grand array

the swelling presence

and the chorus

crowding out

your solo voice

you must note the way

the soap dish

enables you

or the window latch

grants you courage

alertness is the hidden discipline

of familiarity

the stairs are your mentor

of things to come

the doors have always been there

to frighten you

and invite you

and the tiny speaker

in the phone is

your dream ladder

to divinity

put down

the weight of your aloneness

and ease into the conversation

the kettle is singing

even as it pours you a drink

the cooking pots have left

their arrogant aloofness

and seen the good in you

at last

all the birds and creatures of the world

are unutterably themselves

everything, everything, everything

is waiting for you
