tribal

life has a rhythm all its own
it bends and dips and flows
it moves through channels
swirls in eddies
goes and stops and goes

it’s up; it’s down; it’s all around
from grassy banks and shores
to misty meadows, lofty peaks
rock beds and ocean floors

life winds around the edges
and it goes outside the tracks
it blasts its way and wears away
and trickles through the cracks

sometimes it’s cut off at the pass
or tangled up in weeds
it soars and slips and freefalls
rushes in and then recedes

life looms and lulls and lights the sky
life sucks you dry and fills you
embrace it; chase it; drink it up…
release the fear that stills you

not living is what kills you
