Reason to Ask
Let us sit down quietly, gathered all together.
Let us speak what’s vital, wind and weather.
Listen, the trees that shade us, are our home.
Bless beings we eat, wear, the grass and loam.
Sit peacefully, talking rarely, in gentle voices,
opening our true being to embrace all choices.
Acknowledge our connection to all that abides,
continuous, not separate, link so-long denied.
This tranquil, forever moment, as life unfolds,
potential becomes infinite; a vast vista behold.
At once aware, all partake of sorrow and glory.
We all bring our verse, help complete the story.
Expanding until we hear the distant stars sing.
Hear angelic voices in the flutter of our wings.
Aware all life in our universe can choose to fly;
not now, nor ever, has been reason to ask why.
Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
