Remembering


Photo by Daphne


There is nothing you need to do, you know

no amount of hiding or seeking
or telling or trying will erase
the ache, the weight
the trembling, strangling
middle of the moment
grip
that threatens to feast
on your core

You need only
return
to the part
that breathes
and beats and hears
and Sees
all on its very own

to the part that hums
and sways and dreams
lullabies

of Peace

Come, it says
lean the weight of you
against me
sit and stay

until you remember

that you are tangled
and woven
in stardust
in roots and rivers
in suns and moons
in every breath
that has ever breathed

until you remember

that you are Me
and I am You
that together we
Are

everything
