not doing anything

3920818927_db4411b148_mnot doing anything
but fully being
all of me I’m open
to letting healing wash within

and as it washes in
it washes out
a tide of healing
ripples from my
heart its circumference
expanding
even though it loses
tangibility
there is enough
within this wave
to reach across
the world

and as it moves
it slips within
the heart of one I truly love
and two I’ve yet to meet
and five I’ve often met
and billions who are filled
with the same longing
(though they might not know it yet)

and as these hours
of being present
to the pain
of past mistakes
or not mistakes
but what was then allowed to happen
in order that I feel the pain
that prompts my heart
to open
and send these
ripples round the world

pass

we change
