Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.
-Winnie The Pooh

It's here, love

The spring has come, the flowers spread their seed,

Humans are doing the same

(They're multiplying, dear,

there will be more of them--

more flowers, more people, more life)


It's amazing, love

Different cycles: nine months, or two

One year if you're a tree

(But it's the same isn't it? Life spreading life,

the created becoming creators,

time working as a friend, for once)


We're alive, love

We walk

We talk

We lie under our dark blue sky and argue the merits of living on the moon

(You think it strange, but it's a wonderful thought, truly:

just us, preserved on cool rock.

We would look down at Earth and imagine ourselves closer to the stars)


We're dying, love

I celebrate this life but

Living is also dying

We might as well celebrate that too

(My time will come before yours, I hope;

with you, I would be that selfish)


It's okay, love,

Winter will come again

The flowers will die

We will die

(And it will be tragic, surely,

but deserved, I imagine,

and we will have lived greatly, tirelessly;

we'll welcome the rest)
