A waking heart

December 28, 2018

 

I searched for myself in the judgement of ancestors & echochambers under listening feet / fumbling through the words of others I foraged line-breaks & metaphor / stumbled into punctuation / I have been overactive & inert / push forward & withhold / over the solstice time no ritual spoke to this quiet heart & I retreated into wine bottles & maudlin / gnawing at my bare heels the words: you are not doing enough, you are not enough / I cannot run from this anymore / I invite them into my heart / sit with them as old friends / listen to grievances & speculation / hold their hands through the dark hours / this morning when I wake they are gone / ritual finds me in the sea waves and a stomach bowled with hot porridge & chestnuts, figs & dates / I whisper I love you & write these words in gratitude / the days are lengthening / my heart wakes #wakeyourheartup #wildwoman #ritual #dailyconnectionwithnature #followmyheart #followmyfeet #liveauthentic #vanlifeeurope #homeiswhereyouparkit #momentsofmine #seaswim #winterswimming #solstice #postsolstice #selfrealization #personalgrowth #poetlife #creativelife #lifeisart #artislife #amcreating
