Issue 2.5 – Poetry

Let us pausefor a moment and pray. (34)


Find what turns your soul into a hummingbird.

Your heart into a nest.


Chase the great heart of the world.

Run vibrantly to the point

where ascension begins.


Don’t trust anyone who feels endangered

in the reflection of your radiant safety.

You are a rose

protect your own petals.

Use your marvelous thorns.


Inhale inspiration. Exhale poetry.

Claim your beautiful truth.
