Eternal Nest

take time to rest 
inside the wild hum of life’s unfolding…

notice the way the sun bows to the moon,

the primordial residue of stardust that saturates your bones…

press your ear 
to the ground of the great below;

breathing in unison
with the belly of the deep;

wherein the recesses of this dark expanse
a preternatural light shines like a thousand chandeliers...

come to land in this eternal nest;
composed of 

tender twigs of softness, 
openness and vulnerability…

shimmering threads of love, 
service, connection and community…

downy feathers of hope and generosity...

earthy fronds
of the compost of what once was...

purposeful breath 
of strength and fortitude…

gossamer strands of indigenous wisdom 
from the natural world...

as you offer to the weaving 
your own brilliant vision 
of the world we know is possible;

remember ~

side by side
heart to heart;

we are all here in this together…
