Clearing by Martha Postlewaite

Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands–

and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself
to this world so worthy of rescue.
