Stripping away decades of cracked paint
revealed power, intelligence, intuition and kindness.
Steaming off wallpaper that was once in vogue
laid bare natural compassion, understanding and articulateness.
The original is wise beyond measure,
connected deeply to others and their experiences and
in communion with the loving spirit of us all.
This shining light carries no shame. It compassionately observes.
It is soul and spirit, the goodness and light
that is all of our birthright.
Powerful, capable and nurturing,
my arms are wide to others and to myself.
I can care for my spinning mind
and so can we all.
