all of us, by christy barnes
“may calm warmth work in us,
deep light shine through us,
the water’s power sound in us
and the ground’s strength live in us.
we are all journeying, we are all singing,
we are all weeping.
we know each other as deeply as we can see.
if I do not know you,
I am blind or you are bound.
let my warmth thaw your bonds.
create my eyes with your light.
silently and together we are all journeying:
like the rivers underground, like trains through the tunnels, like stars through the evening.
let us look at each other and know it.”
