relax: evolution continues with or without you (classic)

This post appeared last year around this time, with a different image.
Perhaps it will say something new to you —

or echo something familiar in a surprising new way.

please take a number
and commit to remaining in line until service is rendered

allow yourself simply to wait
maintain a measured distance from the impatience
that roils beside and beneath you,
and know that your moment hangs imminent
with arrival

please relax every reflex that whiffs desperation
unclench your jaw
and for heaven’s sake,
silence the incessant tiptapclickclack
of your tightly wound fingers and toes

if you have prepared yourself
to embrace a heretofore untold-of unfolding,
it is but a matter of time

if you have felt the loosening of
the consensual bounds of linear time,
then you know that time increasingly means nothing

and if you have sought deeply
to reconcile your every agreement
you just may be ready to decloak and step into the All

how much clearer can Creation be?
your personal invitation has been proffered in words meant only for your ears
in tones designed to find their way home via the corridors of your heart
in hues saffron and violet, indigo, cyan
a breeze of becoming breathes softly into the valleys of your open mouth
all this for no other reason than to awaken you to grandeur

what gain is there in sleeping on?
that which you cling to offers you naught of substance
and but scant nourishment for your hungering soul
yet you turn away from the knock at your door

resistant to a fault, you will not take a step off the sinking ship,
already it has taken on enough water to take it down ~
the deck chairs will not rearrange themselves
to hasten your rescue

within your walls of errant hesitation
rests a slumbering seedpearl aching with an irrepressible urge to blossom
how much longer will you deny its place in the sun?

you have been given wings to fly,
an insatiable imperative to grow ~
evolution continues with or without you!
why not climb aboard and enjoy the ride
minus the crutch of destination?

mirrors have been placed at every intersection
do not avert your gaze

not one other receives the reflection that is you
