.

each day the sun rises, the sun sets

the world turns to create this illusion

your day may be my night

my calm, descending orb may be

your burning, rising fireball

all the while, the ground we stand solid on

is actually spinning relentlessly under us

whatever you “see” is perception driven

beauty and sadness

tragedy and joy

heartache and elation

all of these things shift forms

based on what the angle is

my lens is different than yours

yours is not the same as

his and hers and theirs

even common details

become blurry, ultimately

arguing absolutes and opinions, equally pointless

spend more time accepting

try harder to be aware and awake

be ready to receive whatever

put your energy into love

open your heart and mind

prepare to view from a different angle

try to avoid shame and judgement

see and feel and embrace all you can

expand and let in as much light as possible

before the last revolution completes

and the shutter closes forever.
