7 In poetry

introductions (a poem)

this part is heavy,
melancholy.

this part feels frail,
like grandma’s hands.

this part was mended,
crooked stitching.

this part stays stoppered,
bottled up.

this part is starving,
spirit hunger.

this part is lonely,
suffering.

this part stays present,
always open.

this part is love
in all its forms.

this part is wildness,
fire & ashes.

this part holds anger,
unadorned.

this part (the seeker)
prays, is answered.

this part abundant,
overflows.

this part unfolds –
repeated patterns.

this part is fractured
storm has come.
