don't go searching in a graveyard
that's not where the party is
knocking on the door of coffins
looking for a friend
no dancing with ghosts
they are fleeting as the fluttering leaves in autumn
 
the moment is now with the grocery store cashier
the homeless man who says God bless you
and his Labrador Retriever
that's where the gold is
the place of contentment and peace
just keep opening to the next thing
overflowing with more than enough
 
all the people we see are wandering in the desert
empty ships drifting on the currents
in the Sea of Storms
trying to fill a bottomless vessel
drink sweet water and enjoy the day
with whoever crosses your path
one friend is worth a pot of gold
