It takes me by the mind
Walking in kingdoms that are not mine
That are not useful
As I pine for all
And crave everything
My empty hands grasping
Picking at the stitches
That sew everything together
Moth chewed holes in the fabric
Of the pattern
Leaving trails behind me as I search for what matters
The experiences of one life
We must return
Again and again
Before it sinks in
A thousand years of information
And we are still useless
When all we need
In the Fibonacci spirals
Or out tree trunk minds
10 thoughts on “We already have all we need”
Excellent Poem, worth two, three, four re-reads, just to make sure we got the Gist of It! This old man in Alaska, has got his-self down to almost nothing, a little wood & coal for his fire, Spring Water to drink, (Which just froze up on me), one meal a day, no T.V., no micro-wave oven, just a Fridge & freezer, Electric bill below $100…..Lot’s of books, & this lap-top for communication, sitting alone, now that my Lady/Love is gone, entertaining myself, writing, playing eight & twelve tongued drums, & tossing another log in the fire every now and then…..Everything designed for Simplicity……& Good neighbors living by me……Remembering to step outside every morning & thank that old Sun for shinning, gifting us another day of Life on this Good Earth, I live alone, yet I am never really alone, as all of our ancestors stand behind me, guiding me on my way……Happy Solstice! ________________________________
Happy Solstice – summer one here
And Karma comes into play here, keep selling that filthy coal to China, and those fires will rage across the land. How much is the Money Earned worth if one cannot plant his crops for the next years want? GREED is BLIND and indifferent to men, it only serves it’s self…..It is the Master & Men it’s servants/slaves, slaves to Desire……
Nature holds the answers. We tirelessly look for new ways to destroy it.
I am sitting at our block in the hinterland at the coast – we travelled over yesterday – the difference is mind blowing. Out there all is dry and parched here it is wet and green and the cicadas and birds are so loud. If feel like life is pushing into me from the outside – it’s pretty amazing. We are nothing without nature – it is our medicine, our food our water. The world right now is a very scary place – I hope it is a tipping point into sanity and not a further departure.
That sounds delightful, I’m happy that you are there taking it in. I know you will appreciate and enjoy every moment. 🙂 Breathe, breathe deeply……
So beautiful and yes Mare breathing deeply ❤️
Ah I’ve missed your words. I had to read this several times and just let it sink in. I needed this tonight.
