Day Twenty-three

 

Napowrimo on Facebook challenged us to write a poem to our favorite letter of the alphabet. After considering some wonderful letters, I decided that I like the letter B, because it says all it needs to say:
Be.

I didn’t write this to the letter B though, I wrote it to you.


Be

My only advice
is to be yourself,
alive on this planet
which you know is just a tiny blue marble
spinning in circles
in a dusty little corner
of this thing we call Universe
but only understand
in the sketchiest details.

A thing so incredibly vast,
so full of tiny marbles
all spinning in circles
in colors and patterns and paths
all their own.

And you know that you, yourself
are spinning in circles
in colors and patterns and paths
all your own.

Are you dizzy?
Are you trying too hard not to crash?

Or can you just let go
and know that you will spin
until the day you finally stop
and until that day all that matters
is that you are here
just for awhile
dancing on a tiny blue marble
on the edge of all things.

You are here.
