A valentine poem for you, for the earth. Perhaps especially for those who are in solitude this Valentine’s Day. Jai Maa ❤
Here the earth curves in welcome
meeting my back with the sure comfort
of a wizened love.
I lean into the embrace,
inclined to believe
this is meant to be.
I rest against stones in their fullness, round
rising from the ground
warmth penetrating my cold, jagged edges
as I sink into the flow
that caressed their shape
Here so held solitude
My awareness slides
into the ever flowing river
surely as the salmon
in rushing depths.
This as simple and precious as breath
Here a truth:
You are not loved.
You are love.
You are not on this earth.
You are of this earth.
You can not be separate from who you are
and even the strongest of forms
will change with the flow of time.
