Live like someone left the gate open,
run out into the smell
of freshly cut summer grass.
Feel the meditative quality,
the back and forth of the electric mower.
Put some sweat into
the creative ideas filling your head,
live like someone left the gate open.

Defy gravity,
that crazy construct
of the collective unconscious.
Drive physicists wild,
like gravity
which is not strong enough
to accomplish what you see it do.
Create an impossibly joyful life.

Live like someone left the gate open
and now that no one is watching
What will you do?
What does the world say is wrong
but you know is so perfectly right for you
in your life at this moment?
Do it, now.

Live like someone left the gate open,
leap and run like a puppy
finally, magically,
free to express the exuberance
in the boldness of hope.
Powerful as your mind
blurs the lines
between what is real
and what is dreamed into reality.

Live like someone left the gate open
on purpose watching over
you as you explore
the world of your imagination.

Live like someone left the gate open
sneak out
freely enjoy the twilight
braided between dog and wolf,
now that you see
it is open for you.

Everything new and exciting
and scary
but you
have committed
to live like someone left the gate open,
so you do.
