The Golden Thread

stay close
to the golden thread
that is yours in the great weaving,
the sacred tapestry of life…

do not mistake another’s
luscious shimmering
for your own…

sink deep, into the cosmic strata,
the holy stardust that is buried in your bones,

the recesses of the earth’s hot core
within the terrain of your body;

listen to the singularly resonant tone;
the fibril of your very own raison d’être…

the luminous bouquet
of voices in the outer world
that stream forth
as blossoms from the soul;

loud and disrupting,
vulnerable and tender,
galvanizing and empowering,
soft and prayerful,
grounding and tethering,
silent and unseen;

lose not your bearings
in the vast sea of sounds and sights,
forget not the
poetry of your own calling...

remain steadfastly true;
kindling your devotion
to the holy thread
that unrelentingly expresses itself
as you,
through you…
