Chameleon

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!!!!
