It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new.

What Else Could I Do?

And as night drew near, what else could I do?
I embraced the shadowed world,
Entwined with lapus blue.
Another moment noticed, 
Another gift received,
Looking out my window,
With gratitude,
I breathed.
