Circles of Support
Letting go of everything that feels squeaky.
Holding a conversation with the
absence of the things you yearn for
and the presence of the loud experiences that exist.
When you stretch yourself
between presence and absence
you hear god
rhyming with your breath.
Finding yourself in everything
you touch on with your thoughts, feelings and words.
Tasting the essence of your being
and letting it melt into your soul.
Releasing yourself from the chains
you plait around yourself.
Wrapping your darkness with a blanket
dotted with heart’s truth.
Resting in the middle of the storm.
To be home in your wounded body,
finding peace with the way the day unfolds.
To be at home in your brittle heart
discovering the strength you forged,
that no one’s love
could have prepared you for,
when you learned how to
leave behind the smaller frightened parts
of you so you can take the step
to embody a bigger presence
with bigger questions
and more expansive views.
When you shift your focus
what matters to you shifts too.
