Adopt the posture of Yes

Look to the edge of your embrace and

Go further.

It won’t be daisies and sweet peas

Yes requires a longer gaze into

All we’ve denied: a

Softening of the brow, an

Opening of the chest, a

Releasing of clenched jaw

Breathe into circumstance

Allow even this…even this

In the jagged, a diamond is buried

Resistance will leave you cut

But the sands of

gratitude, if given

their sweet time will

soften, and

polish the

sharpest edge

With practice,

there is


we cannot welcome.
