I renew my vows every day--

to focus actively on others--
to celebrate their uniqueness--
to be at one with a program of kindness--

but tomorrow will be a day

when vows will change--
and earth will reassert--
isolation--sameness--and ennui--

tomorrow I'll be in a changed world--

charged awareness scouring
ramshackle ruins for ghosts of the fearful
clinging to their plots--

tomorrow new vows--

to admit life as is--
to realize essence in each waxing and waning form--
to prize the peace unknown to our ordinary minds
