Gestalt*

Trust.
A quality that binds us
In the ordinariness of things.
The watching and the waiting,
The inevitable vacillating,
The trials and tribulations,
Of unexpected stings.
The unspoken given
Of the space in between ¹
A simple acknowledgement
Of the places we’ve been;
Journeys planned and unplanned,
With rocks on the tarmac,
The kind of interactions
We just can’t take back.
Love and compassion
The gifts without words.
That gently protect us
From the vexing and absurd.
The power of partnership
A practical art-
The whole always greater than the sum of its parts.
