Return - Solstice 2011, Port Townsend, WA

The sun moves toward us now,

I think of life as a spiral path.
Experience keeps coming around,
We change and remain the same.
Like the tides,
Like our breath,
Changing the landscape of our perspective.

What is possible at one time is not possible in another,
As if we travel in a maze of invisible doorways,
And stepping stones.
Their appearance depends upon our choices,
And actions.

A phrase posted on a wall reads,
The main thing is to keep the main thing, the main thing.
Later, I can’t remember the exact words,
So it becomes,
The main thing is to remember the main thing.

I’ve heard it said, that when we argue with reality,
We will never win.

But some things are true.
Everything changes.

The sun returns.
And to this window,
I, along with materials, return.
Rubbing up against each other differently,
Creating a another story,
An evolving story,
In this path of Return.
