Don’t push. The slightest might
send us further adrift, deep within the ocean
of a million doubts.
Don’t push. The natural process
of life and love occur not by force,
but by a power unknown.
What is to come will come
with nature’s pull.
Feel the mighty presence of towering mountains,
the healing power in a slow trickling creek,
the unchanging guidance of a roaring river,
the mysterious wonder of crashing waves,
the cleansing touch in a pouring rain,
the wide open spaces within misty fog,
the joyous moments beneath the nurturing sun.
Feel the love that cannot be forced
or undone, bowing to nature
and her Maker.
Listen closely. Pushing leads
to fighting, hurting, taking, breaking,
war and death.
Pushing leads to isolation, resentment
The sun pulls the flowers and trees
to the sky, the sea, the river
to freedom, the moon, the stars,
the wind, everything sacred and true
pulls life to perfection.
So it is with love. Don’t push.
Wait. Let nature work its wonders
and pull us home in unison.
