Invitation

invitation.jpg

There is a place
not so far away
that calls to me
in quiet moments
with an invitation

to look upon life 
not as a race to
be won, but as 
a morning stroll
in my favorite 
foreign city,

to take my place 
beside the others
in the tribal dance
older than time,

to make space 
to stand in awe 
of simply being 
alive, at home
in the mystery.

James McCrae
