Save Your Fruit

Compassion isn’t an apple,
to slice and eat.

It’s an ocean.
An ocean to dip in,
immerse completely
hands, face, feet,

There is no end to the ocean.
Remind others –
it does not go dry.

We are not challenged to save the apple for what’s important.

We are asked to stay open,
to go back to the ocean again and again.

Timing our breath so as not to drink the waves.

Daring to return,
even when your cheeks are
stained with salt
from this Life.
