The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces 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 though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

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
