An old tree rooted in stone.
A mountain latched to the earth.
I am steady.
Warm feelings in the company of others.
Laughter uncontained with smiling eyes and wrinkled faces.
I am joy.
Heavy weights bound to the soul.
A sense of a presence no longer seen.
I am loss.
A sprouting bud, bound with life’s glory.
The first wailing cry of a new spirit from old.
I am creation.
The kaleidoscope of wild flowers in spring.
Golden sunsets arcing on sparkling water.
I am beauty.
Filling of the mind, satisfied with knowledge.
A communion of souls drinking thoughts of each other.
I am substance.
A traitor’s heart turned in time.
Unmasked apology desperate for peace.
I am forgiveness.
Erasing the hunger of stomach’s gone empty.
Clothing the destitute and armoring them with things unconditional.
I am grateful.
A mother’s heart, warm for her children.
Two people forever entwined, knowing nothing but each other.
I am love.
