I want to give you something gritty you can count on...
like the salt of my tears
soil from the garden
warmth of the fire
the wind at our backs
the growl of a grizzly bear at dawn...
we all need these incantations to work… you see
the ones of... river song
and ocean waves, rain at midnight, the torrent of a water fall,
the sweet low murmur of spring water finding the surface
things we can all navigate by… they are as essentially apart of us… as Earth… they are also
from one world to the next...
the elements, bare to us the truth of our actions on this planet
so don't forget… at some point... we all need Her...
we all need her… the old woman that reads the signs… winking as she coos
Something alive wants to burn thru us, and insure we come out better than before.
So take more deep belly breaths, indulge your laughter, swim in fresh waters more often then not. Linger in sunlight, and sit with friends by candle light humming
There are so many ways to say I love you
and not one
that really counts as goodbye.”
Poem by Shelley Sage Heart 2017
