We can learn how ro be from that which we see

I'm better now
 

Where does my sanity hide,

in the corners of my mind?
 
I catch a glimpse of it there,
from time to time.
 
It often escapes me, finding comfort in the trees,
in their roots and bark, in the veins of their leaves.
 
Sometimes I can't find it, 
once I took a good look inside a tear, 
all I saw was sorrow and fear.
 
I looked closer into its center as it laid in the curving palm of my hand, 
I saw myself and tried to understand.
 
I was smiling at the world inside this tiny sphere. Refracting light sent from the sun made little rainbows appear.
 
I was surrounded by hunger, arrogance, and greed, by those who never loved, and haters who never bleed.
 
And then there it was to my surprise,
my sanity alive, in another tear from my eyes.

There were comets and asteroids,
planets and stars, reflected from the heavens were saturn and mars.

Moving in dedicated orbits trying to survive, being free, doing what they were meant to do was giving them life.

Receiving, giving, moving, breathing,
a galaxy of suns together as one.

I saw their tempests from afar, super novas, burned out stars.
But they lived with no denial or entertained any vanity, poetry in motion became their sanity. 

I'm better now.
