Vital Tumult

Have you ever noticed
How exciting the tumult is
The uproar and confusion
How vital and present it feels

We battle through it
We quell the uproar
We resolve the confusion
We overcome

And it feels good
Even in the midst
Of the worst of times
These are the best of times

So I wonder how it is
We fail to acknowledge
Just how much
We love a good war

We are a species
Of adrenaline junkies
Bent on our own destruction
Because it makes us feel alive

Sunset and Alpen Glow over Jasper, Amber, Violet and Indigo, Jasper Sky Tram, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Jasper Butterfly

Over Jasper
Where sunset meets the alpenglow
Amber mingles with the violet and indigo

Here am I
On the cusp of the sky
While far below
Rivers and life
In endless flow

Reminding myself
Of the importance
Of even one small voice
In the tide of events

Like the butterfly
In Beijing
I flutter
Back down to the valley
Where I ride the flow
Singing
From the depth of my soul
