Gratitude contd.

Words of the Elders

first a chink in the dam,
eroded, one drop at a time,
love's waters slowly smooth away the rough edges;
silty earthen nectar pours out,
coloring, mixing, swirling, sloshing, settling,
until the river flows a deep, muddy red.

Pema, Robert, Larry, Margaret, Sylvia, (elders)... 
thank you for your guiding words, spoken from the heart.
May they be among the drops that start the flood
of gratitude, love, wisdom and freedom.
