some days clarity

why this morning


about bone dancing

and thinking hearts

about loving a life

almost not given

almost smeared out by darkness arisen.


how to mother and not become

that to everyone

how to give more sweetly

and embrace the reverence of this seat

gliding guiding

 into  the circle of life.


through connection to all

suffering gleans meaning

bonded with scar tissue

thawing awakens into metta

to soften... bow

to rise surrender now.
