The 30,000 Feet Perspective

Turbulence is nothing
but another form of movement
and the great Salt Lake
from way up here
holds all of the stories
tells all of the secrets
of glittering city lights
love burns bright
and was here all along
just waiting for you
to wake up and notice
riding waves
of skin
and tears
and words
and
all of the spaces in between
the words
and interlaced fingers
and teeth
on tongue
and smiles
that swallow
the old and welcome
you home
you are right
here
right now
right
back at the beginning
on the first day
of your life
happy
birthday
every single day
you are reborn
clean and whole
no need
for baptism
your existence
is your redemption
and all
that is holy
is all
that there is
and all
that there
is
at the end of the day
is a love song
calling
out
for your immortal
soul
calling out
your goodness
for which
you do not have
to try
it just is
you just are
this
is
just the time
and
just the place
you
belong
