You, Me, the Sea

crawling out from the sea ~d nelson
crawling out from the sea ~d nelson

From this glowing
long-cycle’s sweat.

To these lines from sadness’
dried saline tears

To this semen which
has produced nothing yet.

To drops of blood from
actions taken in anger or fear.

Even millions of years
after ancestors evolved from the sea.

Still the sea’s salty currents
flow all throughout me.

The bells of mindfulness are calling out to us, trying to wake us up, reminding us to look deeply at our impact on the planet.
~Thich Nhat Hanh from “the world we have”
