I’m not the only one to ask
what my soul is, why I’m here now
having this experience, my purpose
– if there is one.
I believe they’re all connected.
Solve one lights them all.
Answers are quick now,
knowing is common.
Still, I struggle.
My soul speaks softly,
sends me love letters
“Be still, here I am!”
She leaves clues in my palette,
footprints in greens and blues.
She dances in my verse.
All I need to do is show up.
The Daily Post Discover Challenge Tough Questions.
A few lessons on relaxation from my kitty, Paillette:
~ First, whittle your priorities down to three things – food, play, love.
~ Next, trust whole-heartedly that the Universe will provide. And people are essentially good.
~ Then, find any cozy spot and reign over it!
~ Finally, snooze while basking in your own loveliness 🙂

What can I tell you about sacred
– that you haven’t already felt deep in your soul
when the warm salt wind blows in from the Laccadive Sea
laced with fishermen’s gossip and mothers’ prayers?
– that you haven’t already tasted on your finger tip
as it traced the silver veins on pink lotuses melting
in the sun on ancient alters?
– that you haven’t already heard in the festive
song of dancing clouds rolling boldly
across our bare-souled pilgrimage?
– that you haven’t already held, fistfuls of rough
sand and pink salt rocks, shaped like uneven worlds
tumbling between love and habit?
