Step with bare feet, open heart and seeing eyes…

j. ruth kelly, 2013

look up at the trees,
take deep breaths
and sigh…
soak it in and up
and all the way
to the marrow,
drink mother earth’s
feast of peace
in song of sparrows,
call of all
that soothes the soul…

let go
but don’t surrender, release
but remain committed…
partake but don’t devour,
embody eternal wholeness
not by setting yourself apart
but diving in
empowered by love

love,

love,

love,

not sentimental, not asleep, not begging, never weak,
not pretending, not avoiding, not denying obvious truths,
avoiding only the shirking of our power to impart…

love,

love,

love,

seeking clarity, braving revelations, recognizing disparity,
accepting change as the sometimes inevitable rite of growth,
never lording over, relentlessly embracing the flaws and beauty…

within, without,
and all we have yet to know
in this wholeness dance of soul…
