fall slows us down. Gives us time to delve into the cave of our subconscious so we can reflect on what we’ve learned this year. I welcome you to snuggle in and integrate your soul lessons!
My breath blows in clouds around my frigid fingertips
I wiggle my toes and look up at your dark face, sprinkled with the body glitter of thousands of stars
You look down on me with a heart so pure
My eternal witness!
Oh how I love to forget you so that each time I remember you it’s like opening a present
You draw me into your inner sanctum in the autumn,
So I can look at my shadow and love it all the way home
You nourish me with pumpkins and spices
It’s a trick so that I experience my self work as a sweet journey
How I love your sneaky ways
You caress my hair as I cry in your lap
Embarrassed about how I acted before this round of lessons was absorbed
You never laugh at me
You never judge me
You teach me through example how to love
