Filling the mind
opening the soul
with its generative power
the green shoots in spring
the apparent death in the fall
the eternal sunshine of the tropics

Filling my lungs with breath
my head with drama
my life with power
to be me
loving those in my life
giving what I can
taking what is offered

loving my life
and what cannot be told
because all the beauty
is beyond words
the fine line
between thinking and obsessing
reality is beyond the mind

Building the community
one person at a time
joining every 'ohana
grieving every passing
because our hearts all love
even when our actions
might suggest otherwise

bringing dreams to life
inadequate as that may seem
because that is what life is for
my own unique responsibility
shared with everyone else
building a community
one soul at a time.
