Take my hand and walk with me awhile ...

If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it fall ... does it in reality fall?

"Angel Descending the steps of Heaven"

"Take My Hand and Walk With Me Awhile"

I stand here before you, empty of hand.
Alas, I have nothing tangible to offer.
No past that I can rightly cling to as being my own.
No future to hold onto, nor reason for my being,
Save this here ... this now ... this thought
And a simple wish:
That peace of body, mind and spirit be intertwined
In the momentary making of this knowing that is me.

Ever changing, never fixed, I wonder as I wander
Through this journey, we call "life",
Waiting to be woven into the transitory purpose at hand.
Clear of mind, free of spirit, pure of heart,
I strive only to see the beauty that abounds.
I am an empty vessel waiting to be filled.
Take my hand and walk with me awhile ...

... And I finally understand now, almost a full year later, why this statue has only one hand ....
