Jewels

rainy day Aug 15th 008

Our insides are just the same.

Nakedly disclosing our earthen-burdens

webbed of suffering, and morning joy

O’ that we may live,

like the roots that we are,

ring by ring but we are the stories.

Nakedly, we count raindrop’s golden dust.

Ode to our inner bark, that our hearts would heave

abundance…

  1. I am seeing echoes here of Maya Angelou’s “The Human Family” — the poem that’s been all over TV on that Apple commercial. Good work!
