My heart sings with the possibility of opening fully
Drawing in nature’s rapture through the smiles, sounds, touch and breath that surround me - like a newborn skin.
Beauty envelopes my soul with vibrance
Warm, enriching, fulfilled
Flowing as a trickling brook over smoothed worn boulders and pebbles of past pain.
My body is the reciprocal and filter to receive
Soaking in the nourishment in which each breath sits.
Entwining and gently pulsing through my veins.
I am the river of the ingenious machine of life.
Gratitude rises through the pores of my skin
Resting and evaporating, to mix with the air of all living things.
All that I am bounces back through the mirror of my eyes
Pollinating each landing place of my gaze.
To be repeated in the chain reaction of all that is natural.
I am whole. I am everything. I am nothing. I am here.
Like paintings, words have the power to connect. I share my poems here with you in the hope that they benefit others.
