Call Yourself Forth

photography by Susa SilvermarieThe path of waking
attains nothing, uncovers
what is there, reveals
rudimentary goodness.
Dismantling cover-ups,
disarming weapons, it’s all
an inside job; step up!
Clear-eyed, open-hearted,
orient your daily life
to waking radiant
even while the world dissolves.
Seeing goodness
pierces human gloom
like a laser.
Call yourself! Call yourself forth
to perceive what is real.
From eons of compression,
lift the shining gem.
Recognize love
everywhere.photography by Susa Silvermarie
