We don’t need all these things
fancy cars and diamonds and jewels
We don’t need our clutter

We don’t need to put on a perfect face
We are not perfect, and neither are you
I am not the boos, and don’t want to be

We don’t need 10,000 things
Just a few things touch my soul…
Music, the people of love

nature, the bird on the wing
crying out in the dark before dawn
the hawk, the dove and the crow

the fawn in her first precious year
the wind blowing in from the sea

the song I sing
I need poetry books
and the I Ching

and I need you
your honesty

the thing you love
desire and prayer

beauty and silence
your Higher Power
lighting the way
