to fall in love with the world again

you must engage 
a flower in full 

you must allow 
a tree to tell 
you secrets. 

you must find 
yourself in this 
ridiculous sky. 

to fall in love 
with this world 
{a gain}

you must hold 
hands with hope
and contemplate clouds. 

you must bare 
your soul your feet 
your heart 

and laugh out loud 
at that full fat moon; 
you must dream 

in fragments of 
fragility and foolish 
trust. you must

run your hands 
through grass and 
high-five stars. 

to fall in love 
with anything again, you 
must give it another chance.

    This is exactly how I’ve been feeling for the past nine months. So grateful for this wonderful world and the nature that holds it together–even if it means getting rid of us in order to do so.
