The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Shall we meet and embrace
In the solitude of our silence
Beyond right and wrong

Where undulating time
Stills itself
Embracing us

As we find respite
Beneath the maple’s canopy
