Just go on

Does the waterfall hold back

her waters as they plunge downward,

Foaming and furling

into dark pools 

Deep and cold?

Does she draw herself away from the thirsty? 

Does the sun hold back 

her shine,

Spilling swift and soft through velvet space

upon the earth below?

When does she hoard her light and say you’ve had enough?

Does the earth scratch back

her black soil from the trees

And halt the churning alchemy of life,

Saying, I’ve fed you long enough?

Be like the waterfall, 

Or the sun. 

Be like the earth

And just go on,

Pouring forth and shining,

Nurturing and feeding,

Loving and giving.

Just go on.
