A balanced life

You call us to the balanced life,
a classic composition,
the bright yellow joy of spring
offset by purple clouds that threaten storms;
the deep green of presence --
of all that is, that lives, that grows --
grounded by the blood-red losses that haunt our pasts
or draw us into the future
beckoning our thoughts and fears....

Help us to stay in the now,
to hold it all in tension;

help us not to stray,
to find the unseen deep blue core within,
the reflection of you that lies in the stillness;
to lie here, crushing blades of grass
and watch as flowering begins.
