|Nick with Magnetron--Kim Fulton-Bennett 2012
Warmest Telepathic Greetings
To all sentient lifeforms!
Every sufficiently advanced culture
Celebrates that day
When they first made contact
With the heartful MindForms
That dwell inside all Matter.
Old tribalists obsessed with hate and swindlehoax
Resisted Deep Meeting as a kind of Doomsday--
Catastrophic to their petty dreams of conquest.
For the rest of us it opened the Universe
To joyous brotherly and sisterly exploration.
May Earth experience this Opening soon:
Far too long have humans lived alone.
This was the day we discovered the Door
That is open to all from the Start.
This was the day we traded in War
In exchange for a wide-open Heart.
This was the day everybody grew up
And put aside the toys of a child--
The day when we tore off our diapers
And entangled our lives with the Wild.
