Poetry Corner

Something slightly different for you on Organdie today – Poetry!  I have to confess to not really “getting” an awful lot of poetry a lot of the time, but this one I actually really like.  I hope you do too.

Clearing

Do not try to save
the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
a clearing
in the dense forest
of your life
and wait there
patiently,
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worthy of rescue.
