Embodied Art of Life (for Gareth)

charcoal and ochre
speak from the reclaimed canvas
blood, kindness and breath
speak from the living man

your body is the pulse of your presence
sign of something vital and larger
power unseen
interconnected being

Buddha, and all the wise ones,
point toward the mystery

our children point toward what they notice
