Life... is not all bad, but it is not all good, it is not all ugly, but it is not all beautiful... It is savage, cruel, kind, noble, passionate, selfish, generous, stupid, ugly, beautiful, painful, joyous --  it is all these, and more...

-Thomas Wolfe

Reaching Humankind

Reaching Humankind

A thin filament - That bows in the breeze

Bends but does not break; Brings me to my knees


Flowering up, out - Reverberating

Tearing me apart; Fragile, frustrating


A thin filament - Catches in the spot

Hidden, locked away; Eroding what’s caught


Like waves hit the shore - Crash and reminisce

Stealing all balance; Sweeps through the abyss

A thin filament - Reaching humankind

Between everything; Bridging belly, mind


Unassuming thread - Rushing river, crossed

Slips through our fingers; Dissolves and is lost
