Rise or Fall?


Life did not fall,

Nor descend from Sky to soil,

A Circle of Divine Affection,

Rising, expanding,

Nothing outside its reach.

Ten thousand sunrises,

Smiling from one flower,

The face of God,

Grinning in each thing,

A Voice,

Whispering at dawn,

Reminding it all,

Of unity, connection,

And most of all,

The Love and possibility,

Each choice offers,

And so we stand,

We choose,

Listening to Love,

Or shouting

. towards destruction,

Eternity calls,

Will we hear

. its gentle whisper?

Will we choose?

We do not rise,

We simply are,

No other way to Be.
