Salt of the Earth?

People who are the good earth’s salt

by the quality of their seeing

by the proof and distillation of their presence

and by the simple weight of their being

season things up for us all

Their generously unconscious yet full-bodied spirits

remind us how we have sadly processed ourselves

into uninteresting and bland

how we have reheated and reused the stale and outdated

until we were chillingly empty

of all vital nourishment

how we have become tasteless staples

unable to give others the taste of wow

or to savor (even for ourselves)

that subtle hint of our own divine flavor

the show-stopping WAM! BANG! POW!

of being completely present, right here

right now
