LifeTrek Poem Deep

Deep
by Bob Tschannen-Moran • 2004

Still waters run deep, or so they say
But how would I know?
Constantly in motion
Multitasking
Distracted by annoyances
Too busy and tired
To notice, let alone to appreciate
The alleged mysteries
Of the deep

Oh, to go where the bottom-feeders go
Down where the light is low
And sound moves so slow
As if to disappear
Into the safety of
Nothingness
Where nothing can touch us
And nothing can go wrong
In the deep

Truly, our hearts are restless
Until they rest
In the womb of life
That artesian source
From which springs hope eternal
Not to mention faith and love
That wellspring of untold possibilities
And passion known only
To the deep

So, it’s time to get connected
Not to the virtual world of
Hyperspace
Not to the busy world of
Outer space
But to the real world of
Inner space
With its potent connections to
Common space
And the deep

From there the energy flows
In the stillness of just one breath
In the rhythm of just one beat
In the burn of just one stretch
In the cadence of just one stride
And the coupling of just one love
There is enough energy
To pull all of life out
From the deep
