When you seek with purpose

When you seek with purpose
You are lost.

Men:
Speak slowly
And softly.
Listen with tenderness
Luxuriate in conversation
But speak only in
Vowels.

Be a bear
Wander to the peaks
Drink from the snow melt
Listen to the gush
Of the rivers in
Spring.

Drinking deeply
Without purpose
Explore the mysteries
Of the well
That nourishes
All
And is never
Less.

Carry the seeds
In your pouch
But do not give them back
To the soil
Unless you want them
To grow!
Keep them to nourish
Yourself.
The tree of life is
Ever-bearing.

Twilight.
Watch the sun
Caressing the moon
Pressing against her
Honeyed lips

I say this
To myself:
A life without purpose
Or direction
Is never
Lost.
Moving slowly and freely
I find myself
Always
In the right place
