Be Luminous. Because you can be.
The only reason you are not luminous
Is because you have draped yourself in dark cloth.
Perhaps you love the moon, but why be the dark moon?
Why not be the bright full moon?
Be your Fulsome Self. Because you can be.
The only reason you are not fulsome
Is because you reduce yourself to nothing.
Perhaps you love a full harvest, but why be a scanty one?
Why not be a cornucopia?
There is no such thing as too much overflowing,
We are not flooding rivers after all.
We are meant to be too much, too often, too intense.
Too excessive, too exorbitant.
And for this I am too thankful.
