A Gift From the Morning Light

Drinking liquid light to illuminate my dark corners, The hidden pockets of body within me, The sliding rhythm of me. I am that. I am The glowing goodness, The delirious joy, The secret smiles, The thrills of knowing and unknowing. Looking within while looking without. With telling heart and sureness of spirit I will bring...

You Are

Human, do not sever your soul from truth's complexity. Do not turn away from the murky work of balance and understanding. Do not hide away from the pain in the world because without it beauty is only half-felt, half-real. Do not resist your grieving, do not fight your discontent or confusion, do not silence your...

A Mother’s Love

Liquid Nature

I’ve always asked myself, “Am I strong enough?” I often come off as the little, blonde, sweet one. Never hurt a fly. Do as you are told. One day I finally knew that my strength is not steely or loud or large. My strength is water. Flexible, flowing, unfettered. Steady, persistant, gently eroding. A quiet,... Continue Reading →
