Part and Parcel

                                                   Flower Dance ~ Philip Brent Harris


Land’s end,
is it real
or only metaphor?
Will it bend,
as need will reveal
what we’ll use it for?

The coastal horizon,
undiscovered place
where we walk.
Will we put a guise on
to hide our face or
so we don’t balk?

The known world,
they tell me, is set.
I cannot believe it true.
All of us whorled,
hearty explorers, yet,
being timid will not do.

Some seek leaders
to guide them through
life’s sometimes thorny maze.
Your distance glass and readers
will aid your view
beyond the distant haze.

Some forge ahead,
boldly, as others hold back.
Though, in time, we all arrive,
Despite what’s thought or said,
whatever trail or tack,
part and parcel of being alive.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
