Accessibility

In the basement of a former library

That was built when matters of accessibility

Were more draconian than only the stairs to the entrance

Which are draconian,

And dramatic

And many

And steep.

A little dog

Chases a little mouse

Under a small chest of drawers…

Tiny feet gain access into dark places for safety

In a space where once upon a time larger feet longed to learn.

………

Protect access,

Physically….

Protect access

To knowledge as well.

Play

In the dark times,

Sad times,

Stressful times

We’re often told to be serious….

To be respectful …

But what can we do that honors life more?

Play!

Leap!

Laugh!

Then snuggle,

Cuddle,

Love.

Fairy trails/paths of snails

A individual road crew appeared,

Where did they come from, this

small construction company of one

Paved glistening paths

Across the screen of my computer

……..

Listen to the messages from the world

That tell you to take it slow,

Be present,

Breathe.

…….

Be amazed with all that surrounds you.

Waddling, one step at a time

You don’t always have to fly

To get where you’re going

Putting one foot after another

Is good advice …..

Even if you have wings

Hugs

I was sitting in the spinning of the world,

So full of fear and terrors,

When a friend asked for a hug….

When the world feels full of hate,

Turn toward

Love.

Old and knew

The oldest wisdoms

Always feel new

When the moment is right,

And the messenger kind.

Egrets

Some days you have no egrets,

Some days you have many.

Let them take flight.
