With Love As My Guide

A view of the starry sky at night, straight up, through the silhouette of trees around the edges.

Amidst the swirl of life's challenges, fears,
and even moments of crisis,
I make time to gaze at the night sky to see the vastness there,
And to remember that this moment in time is but a flicker—
Not an inconsequential flicker—
For what I do and think now does matter.
My work, though, is to let
The debris of this world pass by
While I anchor myself
To what I know is true:
And caring for this precious life—
This precious planet
And all that calls this place home.
This is my North Star.
With love as my guide,
How can I possibly go wrong?
