You broke me open a thousand times
and each time healed me
until the pain of becoming tender
was sweet as nectar.
You sent your breath like a hot desert wind
into my deepest unknown
and I entered into your cave.
You walked with me in my sleeping
and in my waking laughed at my surprise.
I am becoming softer
I am becoming stronger.
I am opening like a gentle river
Ancient flowing – Spirit moving
I breathe in – I breathe out
Ever drawing closer.
The journey continues
I a child among mysteries
Heart beating to the rhythm of every cell
I am a living being.
You can move through me
I yield like clouds
but in my heart is a lion’s roar.
