MY POEM FOR YOU

I wrote this poem for all of us.

Here it is, in all its deep simplicity.

Cheery blessings,

Marg

WHEN THE UNIVERSE SPOKE

Into the night we lay. A talking begun in silence.

Hands lightly clasped. Ribbonly braided, paganly trysted.

 

Aired, fired, watered and earthed; spirit invoked.

“How do we unravel hate and fear in this world?”

We invited the Universe to speak.

 

In silence we listened; in silence we heard

 

“Be meetful, be greetful. Lively and bold.

Allow sadness and shadows; let longing unfold.

Travel, talk. Bounce, digest.

Be stilled in small silence;

Rest.

Whether we make love or break love,

The world can connect.

The word is not love,

The word is respect.”

 

Into the night we danced, unbraided.
