an enormous mildness

underscores our riotous behavior

these days

as if we roar with bitterness

and ignorance

beyond our personal bests

only to have it fade

on the instant

by a break in the concentration

some desire turned higher octave

aspiration come at last to still

the bound feet and the shackled hands

with which we had expressed

our self-imprisonment

let this mildness come

oh it will fade and pass

as all things in creation pass

but its source is another matter

and what next issues from it

is ours also to help or hinder

to hurt or heal in our own stillness...
