Today

There’s a wasp between my fingers
and a bee behind one ear,
Two slugs above my eyelids
and a bird’s nest in my hair.

My body is a tree trunk
my mind a crooked path,
My life juice is a river
my feelings are a raft.

Fulfilling earth’s intention –
imperfect and impure,
with love as my redemption,
intuition at my core.

  1. It might be the wrong time to mention that I got stung between my second and third fingers and the resulting swelling made me look as if I were wearing a baseball mitt. Got a day off work though. 🙂
