Unified Field

21st Rainbow Family Gathering of the Tribes
July 1-7, 1992, Mesa Verde Forest, Colorado


Every time you touch someone
today, even a handshake
Close your eyes, remember
the last time you touched
warm skin through the layers
of cloth, talk, custom
And then open, look into
the eyes of the one you are
hugging, rubbing, wrestling,
baby-powdering, leading
into the dance, making change for,
helping up into the bus:
Trace the chain of touching
to the fingertips of time,
and calculate
the great circle we'll make
when we all meet in one
unified field
on that final Fourth of July
