When there are so many YESes

IMG_0030.jpg

feel the ground
feel the ground
feel the ground

hear the water
hear the water
hear the water 

see the trees
see the trees
see the trees

ground yourself
you're flying away
letting energy move
up and up and up
this is fun
and fine
but for now
let's ground

surrender
the river whispers
surrender

surrender
the mountains rose up
and said
and I felt it
SURRENDER

yod
hey
vah
hey

spirits move
breath in my lungs
the wind in my hair

surrender
the wind whispers
surrender

the ducks don't fret
that they won't have food come spring
surrender
the ducks seem to say
surrender

you had to figure this out:
even when there are so many yeses
when there is one
tiny
little
eeny
weeny
no
then it's no
the answer is no
that's the hardest lesson to learn
that when all the yeses in the world
are dancing around you
filling your head
with grandiose visions
of fire dancing
stargazing
twinkling moonlight
hiking yoga
meditation under the forest canopy
nude meditation
walking meditation
deep forest talks
there was always the hmmmm
the hmmmm house feels dark
the hmmmm resistance to change
the transformation is outside of you
this one is not yours
to save
but yours
to assist
maybe
not yours to save
when there's a no
even a little
eeny
weeny
no
it's no
no matter how much you want it to be yes
it's no
