Perhaps I need to
pause and reflect;
open myself to new experiences;
become enthralled with the mundane -
ants scurrying, leaves dropping, birds singing, flowers opening.
Perhaps I need to create a vessel which is porous
to allow experiences to flow through;
to encourage me hold things and places and ideas lightly;
to make way for the new and different.
Perhaps I need to create a vessel with no lid
to receive and to liberate;
to invite inspection;
to develop a sense of openness.
Perhaps I need to create a vessel only to break it -
to see the beauty in recreation;
to celebrate the cracks and chips;
to allow myself to be human.
