The folly of humanity (as I’ve come to understand)

The folly of humanity
(as I’ve come to understand)
***************************************
We humans picked a date
when summer becomes fall,
but our calendar can’t determine
when a bird will hear “the call.”
States and nations were divided
by the water that was seen
but rivers move and tidal waves
wash land into the sea.
Life’s not concerned with logic,
never stands frozen or perplexed.
It just continues creeping on
from one moment to the next.
While we humans look for reasons,
Life keeps going where it will.
We can swim against the current,
but Life controls our movement still.
Staying present in each moment
is all that we can do,
or Life will slip away before
you’ve comprehended YOU.
And the folly of humanity
as I’ve come to understand?
That we control when or if
Life takes us where we’ve planned!

 

praying you all find peace in the flow of Life,
shavua tov, jen
