Alien
by Michelle Rivera - MRivera008@aol.com 

I am an alien
an outsider in an unfamiliar world
But I am not alone
and sometimes
we find one another
and when we meet
Oh, such Joy
such symmetry
“Are we the only ones?” we ask
but no - there are many more
they’re everywhere, really
some still waiting for enlightenment, revelation
certitude
arriving not as a thunderclap
but incessant and soft,
a purr
and there will be one more
in the world
until soon
we will be a greater number
embracing
balance, compassion and peace
as it was in the very beginning
when humans and animals lived together in paradise
and saw that it was good
