~~~
Our lives are not our own.
We are bound to others, past and present,
and by each crime and every kindness,
we birth our future.

~ David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Birth Our Future – A Glosa

Living capsules
anchored by density
yet jostled amongst
history and space
This freedom of will
a confining zone
Hear the chanting
Through countless rounds
Of repeated unknowns
‘Our lives are not our own.’

Inviting light’s flow
flood ancient mantras,
move cornered
thoughts to
possibility’s curve
which upon descent
into time and space
easily transmit
truth’s current.
We are bound to others, past and present,

relay stations
conducting
thought’s signals
from there to here
Abandon
past blindness
around why
we exist as
Creation’s bases
and by each crime and every kindness,

reveal
variation
expansion
of form
a voltage
enabler
of fount’s
potential
Upon Earth’s alter
we birth our future.
