Meditation on Compassion

A unified breath. A collective sigh.
The human force, a wave of consciousness.
Accessible in the strangest way.
A fight against time. 
Like swimming in the shallows.
Our knees knock against jagged rocks.
Carved out through the ages
Before man took his first breath. 
Before the great awakening.
Two eyes wide. 
A third hidden behind worry lines.
Confusion laps against the shores of the mind.
A quickening. A kindness. As we sail toward understanding.
A world so small it fits inside an oyster shell. 
Laying on the sands of time. 
We bask in enlightenment.
