Each breath
is an invitation
to honor
your heart.
There's a vast blue sky
in your forehead,
a drop of honey
distilling 10,000 stars
that slides down the back
of your throat.
There's a meadow
of white flowers
sparkling with raindrops
in your chest,
and in your belly
a golden sunrise
over the ocean
of generosity.
Creatures of the wing
and fang, hoof and claw,
creatures of the water,
air, dune and forest
all roam free
in your body.
Death is safe here,
a gift.
You are not a guest.
This is
your home.
