In the ocean that is my Self –
There are billions of creatures.
The jellyfish which turns my stomach when I am resentful
The crabs who snap when I am angry
The jealous eels,
The restless sea stars.
But, these are not the creatures who jump above the waves most often when I close my eyes to witness.
The hammer-head in me demands empathy and compassion.
The rainbow fish dances, just to make me laugh to myself.
[& I do OFTEN]
And the plankton are everywhere,
Because I want answers!
So, when I am filled with jealous, resentful, restless or angry,
I remember the breadth and depth of my sea,
And look for other creatures
