Rights of Passage

As openly whole oceans flow
and willingly the winds will blow

let life deliver, give, and drift
around a mountain, through the rift

beneath, beside, before, behind,
above the hurdles of the mind

between the silence of two words,
and soar across your thoughts like birds

whose wings embrace the gift of flight
and, with it, distance, height, and sight

to seek the freedom, find a way
beyond denial or delay

where everything commences so
as openly whole oceans flow.
