Bright and Yellow Somethings

how pleasing it is, 
really really is, 
that we don't know 
each and every 
secret of this 
ancient holy place.

don't go then 
to the gatherings 
of the people, 

if you don't share 
in their humanity, 
if you have no empathy,
if you do not care.


the mountains call me, 
in the morning, 
the ocean calls me 
all day long, 

and i am spoiled 
by their beauty,
indeed quite fortunate 
someone might say. 


i see the yellow flowers, 
working hard, 
reflecting colours 
to my eyes. 

i know that i 
must be impressed, 
loving what i see. 

i need to pay attention; 
time doesn't wait for me.

  1. Yes yes yes to all of this, including especially, today:

    “don’t go then
    to the gatherings
    of the people,

    if you don’t share
    in their humanity,
    if you have no empathy,
    if you do not care”

    I used to wish that I had known this earlier in my life, before I fully embraced the fact that I am an Edge-Dweller when it comes to “the gatherings of the people”. Yet in another way I’m glad that I discovered it for myself.

    And then have heard it mirrored back in the retellings of others’ experience.

    Just like this. Thank you.

    1. Thank you writingpresence!

      Describing myself: I prefer to avoid crowds. But I will step into a public relations role when I have to. If I see someone who needs kindness, that is important and so I have to.
