Passing through this journey
has shaped and re-shaped me.
My hair is adorned with garlands of
mystical flowers that gently embrace me
that I carry with a smile.
My eyes wide open like a child
exploring the beauty
of the warmth of the sun,
the guiding light of the moon
and the gentle velvety grass
laced with dew drops.
My ears filled with songs like
honey and thundering harsh realities
my life . . .
My lips that whisper and sing songs
like rose petals and cries that
emerge when one is caught
in thorny bush –
My arms that embraced
so many broken souls and strange
souls like lions at times
exerted and laid to rest . . .
My feet set upon a less travelled
path carry me so faithfully
like a royal knight always prepared
to protect me in new horizons when
I am mystified by the divine
scripts of Supreme eternal songs
of shaping and re-shaping
my life to become part of the whole!
