Lighten Your Load: Go Easy On Yourself.

The light from a billion galaxies
Is eclipsed by your luminosity.
The Earth , attracted to your essence
Cannot think to leave your presence.
The moon, entranced, brings gifts of waves
And helps the sun to light your way.
So take the light and take the weight
And to yourself be true
The universe that you create
All comes back to you.

For some of us that could be a very scary prospect.

"The universe that you create
All comes back to you."

Yes indeed. But is it coming back or are you moving towards it?

the great debate, stonepoem person... are we expanding or contracting? i don't know about the rest of the infinate universe, but my stomach just expanded with dinner.

glenn, your range of topic is awesome. i loved the venacular of this piece in particular.

Perhaps the universe does both, kinda like breathing. Anyway, I'm so small it makes no real difference to me!
Oz- what have you been doing??
Katy, you just keep concentrating on whats important! (lol) - Heres a quote for you - "Men are philosophers, Women are decoration" But seriously, thanks all for your comments

Small you may be, relatively speaking, but after all the universe is mainly empty except for many gigantic gaseous balls, and you are neither empty nor full of hot air...keep the light a shinin'!I.

We are supposed to be the specks that make up this huge canvass that is the universe.

It does come back to us as we are each other's reflections. The universe is a mirror of each one of us.

You are so true in your poems, G!

Ian -Thanks, BTW you don't happen to have three plastic cage pieces in your car??
Abhay- Thanks again
Cecelia- in the mirror of your eyes I see me ( a chant from a hippy trippy festival I once went to - there were two large concentric circles of people facing each other and oyu had to walk around, look each person in the eyes and say that mantra. This was followed by a huge collective beehive of people all humming. And this was just the start of the day.) Haeven and hell are here on Earth now, and we are all only as good as the least of us.
Swan- You're welcome on both counts.It does seem we have a lot to be grateful for.
Bob-Thanks again.. it's probably the rhyme that got you (:-). I like your use of the word literally btw.

Given my upcoming workload, I should take that title to heart and consider reciting it to myself as a sort of mantra. *grin* Loved the first two lines especially; makes me feel special as I read it. ^_^ Cheers.

Hija Soulless, don't work too hard! You will always be special. You too Bradford. Can't make promises about that light though; the latest moon has really spent me.
