Lemon and cherry blossom trees against a backdrop of cerulean sky
An unkempt wilderness of weeds that others see as pests
But I see natural nutrition, God and untamed beauty
Hands wrapped around a steaming morning coffee, with its warm
Coconut milk foam hugging my top lip
These are the things I love.
Warm sun blanketing my skin in an influx of vitamin D
As I close my eyes; pleasure engulfed
Blessed with the presence of the sun God
Candle wax dripping and pooling in its holder
Around the flickering flame of life-force
These are the moments I worship.
Soft atmospheric music, imbued with a subtle raw beat
The silence between the notes brings stillness
Sea-ripples glistening at sunset like liquid gems
My skin breathes salt, heat and life as mother moon watches over me
Ripe and mellow, pregnant with the sun’s light.
These are my nostalgic heart longings.
The tender warmth of like-souls content in the moment
A purring kitten resting on my chest
A wise and sturdy, all-knowing tree; Imposing her tough-love
The forest grandmother telling her secrets through leaf murmurs and root groans
I am stretched out upon the earth, counting stars as cicadas chirp
This is home.
