“They touched the bark of a tree and
the floor of the forest and heard
the laughter of the ones beside them on their journey.
Then, the floor of the forest opened up and a large hole appeared.
Thousands of fireflies floated upwards
And enveloped the moon slowly over time.
The moon dispersed softly into thousands of shiny white particles.
They landed gently upon the heart of all beings —
filling, connecting, protecting, enlightening with love, earth, wind and fire.
They felt the trees breathing, the grass growing with
the knowledge that fear is but an illusion.
They touched home.”
