New Practice/More Alive

We sit and listen,
really
Listen.
We fold hands together,
tuck tissues away into pockets and sleeves,
stand with each other
facing the fires.
We do not cradle,
stroke,
to soothe;
We hear the message,
affirm its present and past.
We solve problems
by letting them fully be,
so that we can Fully Be
in this new world that has always
been
here.
We open up.
We share chairs,
a couch,
blankets,
our sadnesses,
dreams.
We walk into the wide open night
a bit more fearless
than the hour before.
We stride into
the bright blooming dawn
just a bit
clearer,
lighter,
Alive.
