Wake up to a calm overcast gray fall day
A message that a dear one has passed away
Birdsong cuts through the eerie hum of the freeway
Follow the hawk’s path, that magnificent bird of prey!
Does it see clearly from that vintage point so up high?
Wonder if this chaos seems orderly through that fish eye
Chaotic world that is so full of angry rhetoric hate
Laughter of a child transports one to a calming state
Contemplate on this new life where virus are the villains
Around the world they are signaling the adept chameleons
The Chameleon who changes its colors to match the world it sees
It has the luxury of being pure light when it navigates the wide open seas
Falls in chaos when the sea is assaulted by a storm
Has difficulty landing in the middle of that thunderstorm
Walking on a straight path to the destination that is set
Even more difficult with all the debris hitting its head
Eyes closed, take a deep breathe, and remember the hawk
Look within, ascend the chaos and take emotional stalk
Look at the fear and thank it for all its ceaseless service
But now is the time to burn within Love’s blazing furnace
Love for the innocent, love for the warrior, even love for survival’s fear
Experience that moment of oneness where there is no thought to hear
Connect to this bliss, envision the path, join with all my heart
Create a world where I take a stand. Unity is just the start!!
Hear the wind in the rustle of the leaves as Love tries to say
Chameleon! Change the world from within! That is your only way!!!!
