Oh how high beyond
anything posing sky
birth the best in life.

Oh how deep beyond
beseeching seep
reach the rest of source.

Grow woman-child, grow up
we and be

all that glories in shameless living
spilling, flowing all

midwife of soul

child-like resilience
in the face of life’s hardest stories,

branches wrapping ’round us all
birthing newness and wisdom
in those bestowed with parenting

wonder wise

wily, winsome
glory-you, tree-song
singing us all to renewal.

jrk – in awe of my temporary role of facilitator and witness of the emergence of one magnificent soul.

  1. Your words captured so much and the photos are precious. … this touched something inside of me and I grieve the loss of witness, facilitator, of roots, and even the tree. But marvelously written and thanks for sharing your words.

The coupling of the words ‘wonder wise’ is COWRAZY brilliant. The pictures gave me SUCH JOY! And in Your signature, You could say You’re ferrying MANY souls along! I count myself as one of those who grows and glows in Your words!!! THANK YOU and Big Hugs and Namaste. 🙂

    1. You have a knack for evoking a lump in my throat when you so openly and passionately respond. Thank you, love. I really felt inadequate with this poem but you’ve richly wiped that out. Big big hugs…
