    THE CHANGING TIDES

    For a long time, I pondered
    the message of the changing tides:
    the ebb and flow of the sea.
    I asked, the blows that life had dealt:
    part of some karmic pay back?
    Something to gain knowledge
    by sharing struggles?
    Jolts to awaken the sleeper?

    I felt change taking place,
    I saw an old world
    teeming with new thoughts,
    ideas springing countless from the cosmos!
    Yet many were those who could not accept
    β€˜The Gift,’ fearful of change, slaves unaware,
    trapped in their confined spaces.

    Silently I would think thoughts
    to awaken the sleepers
    but when it came to writing,
    the words I drew made no sense!
    Who would ever listen or try to grasp
    the message calling out to them
    from my heart?

    Then I met the man without a face,
    whom many considered strange,
    and I saw what most could not see:
    one who did not think like a human,
    whose innocence of earthly values
    caused him to take my mis-turned words
    and make them speak as I could not,
    and make them dance as I had dreamed
    they would someday!
