as water is

without friction.


Flow around the edges

of those within your path.

Surround within your ever-moving depths

those who come to rest there –

enfold them,

while never

for a moment holding on.


Accept whatever distance

Others are moved, within your flow.

Be with them gently,

as far as they allow your strength to take them,

and fill with your own being

the remaining space when they are left behind.


When dropping down life’s rapids,

froth and bubble into fragments if you must,

knowing the one of you

now many

will just as many times be one again.


And when you’ve gone as far as you can go,

quietly await your next beginning.
