Imagine you fly

Imagine you fly

in the sky

over the trees

and over the houses

where the people live.


And you can look

down from a height

into the rows of houses,

and into the lives

of all the living

breathing, wondering

beings there.


Imagine their lives,

in all the joy and pain

and trials that attend

their days and their

survival ways of coping,

and finding some

meaning and grace.


And in this imagination

filled with compassion,

you say a blessing on

all the beings who

search for happiness

and look to find

their better way.
