Do not try to save
the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
a clearing

in the dense forest
of your life
and wait there
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worthy of rescue.
