it is written
the act of writing is
holy words are
sacred and your breath
brings out the
god in them
i write these words
quickly repeat them
softly to myself
this talisman for you
fold this prayer
around your neck fortify
your back with these
whispers
may you walk ever
loved and in love
know the sun
for warmth the moon
for direction
may these words always
remind you your breath
is sacred words
bring out the god
in you

Fridays in February will be reserved for sharing my efforts to cultivate a new perspective through the medium of compassionate self-portraiture via the e-course Be Your Own Beloved, with the lovely Vivienne McMaster. This feels like a new level of bravery and intimacy here on the blog. S
