We are offered a review, like after death but before dying, seeing the whole life --
everything...the good, the profane, weakness,
temptation, eating, an animal tearing at flesh
wanting more, more, for me
instead of remembering.
Only take enough.
Share with all.
Inhabit all the way, into the billions of cells in our bodies
matter, matters -- the atoms in our bodies
are stars and galaxies
we forgot, forgot
What if I Occupy in my cells, inhabit inside,
abide in my body made of mud, earth and water
so dense and deep under the surface, dark.
What if suddenly a fault
slicing the light into
a dark fissure
pours out all the pains
"Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth, "You owe Me."
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky." ~ From The Gift by Hafiz
Peggy Wrenn grew up in Boulder,CO working renewable energy, affordable housing, astrology, Awakening the Dreamer and Change the Dream with Pachamama Alliance. I write poems and heart love letters. I dream into the new world, full of compassion, peace, joy, justice. We come to understand the New Story of the Universe and everything is part of me and you, stars, all connected. Nothing separates us.
