“The wound is the place where the Light enters you” – Rumi

I enter the womb to release

rejection. Love sings through blood

to churn this muddied river. Her mother

was a bastard-child born into hunger

fed on want and the dust of lies

but she gave me the name Truth

forgetting what I would remember

to wash the film of hate

Indifference is a rip

-tide. Despair, the sandy

floor. Light is the sky

of the heart and I rock

my body

  1. This was lovely, powerful, and honest. I have to say I enjoy so much when you stop by my blog and comment. I have been very hit or miss in regards to getting to read the blogs of others. I do notice your continued support of my work and it means so much to me. Thank you.
