Poetry Party Wednesday

 Sometimes I get tired of thinking about who is right or wrong.  It's enough that we exist, together, in the same space of time.

“Out Beyond Ideas of Wrongdoing and Rightdoing”

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
There is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
The world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
Doesn’t make any sense.
