Safety Net poem by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer Safety Net (Pastel) by Polly Castor

Safety Net

This morning I woke
thinking of all the people I love
and all the people they love
and how big the net of lovers.
It felt so clear,
all those invisible ties
interwoven like silken threads
strong enough to make a mesh
that for thousands of years
has been woven and rewoven
to catch us all.
Sometimes we go on
as if we forget about it.
Believing only in the fall.
But the net is just as real.
Every day, with every small kindness,
with every generous act,
we strengthen it.
Notice, even now,
how as the whole world
seems to be falling,
the net is there for us
as we walk the day’s tightrope.
Notice how every tie matters.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
