A prayer

Oh Universe
What am I in this thing of life?
Am I you experiencing itself?
Like the cloud in a teacup
Am I you?

If so, why is it so hard
to know which path to tread,
to discern my purpose in this
relentless storm of modernity,
that demands so much
insane action
and denies to much of
that which is valuable to me.

Time to nurture, time to heal
Time to play, time to craft.
Love and all things freely gifted.

So tell me grand Universe
Life-giver and Life-taker
What of this one small life –
How best should I live it?
