Acceptance

Learn and learn to love
how the lonely hands discern
themselves and looks for completeness
loneliness,
which is carved out of us discordant beings
everything has a purpose
even the rotting leaf becomes sustenance
for tiny wiggling earthworm
happiness recycles itself
the golden rule of nature
it becomes pure to be embraced again
as you make space in your broken
heart for the new budding relationship
everything gives way
like the old dried autumn leaves
a vibrant bookmark for the seasons turning
Patience is a virtue,
time is a great mystic,
the fondness of something new
is the acceptance of pain.

Listen and hear closely
the loom is churning
our the songs of happiness
pain getting recycled
open our discordant minds
clear the web and webbing
hear closely 
the winds are singing
that lullaby again.
