To accept the invitation

We must not hesitate,
You and I,
to accept the invitation
this unknown path provides

to leave our burdens behind
allowing every sense
to awaken and explore
what has always been there

shimmering and shy
a gift too modest
to claim our attention,
too important to ignore

like a flower…
