On A Flat Stone

Fried Chicken & Philosophy

If I wrote your name
on a flat stone
and threw it into a field
wildflowers would grow
bees would hum
hummingbirds would glide
birds would walk a little slower

If I threw it
across a lake
it would dance
to the other side
popping each bubble
it encountered
and settle on the other shore
waiting for a return flight

If I buried it
under a black walnut tree
lava would stop
and compass point
the gibbous moon
would hide
what was left
of her face
clouds would laugh
burst and cry

All this because
your name was written
on a sun-warmed flat stone
once held in the palm
of my heart
and tossed away.

“It is said that before entering the sea a river trembles with fear.

She looks back at the path she has traveled, from the peaks of the mountains, the long winding road crossing forests and villages.

And in front of her, she sees an ocean so vast, that to enter there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.

But there is no other way.
The river can not go back.

Nobody can go back. To go back is impossible in existence.

The river needs to take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear, because that’s where the river will know it’s not about disappearing into the ocean, but of becoming the ocean.” – Khalil Gibran
