This poem is inspired by a prompt from my creativity coach teacher, Jill Badonsky. It doesn’t feel finished as many of my poems here aren’t and it is my dreamer’s vision held lightly in these words.
We were asked to write about who we would like to be if we could imagine ourselves to be anyone . I believe her a mythical character, a traveler through space and timelessness, who find herself here on Earth.
If you could be anyone, who would you be????
I came to walk this land in intention
There is redemption in my wake
I am Loves call. I am the face of kindness
Intent to fill the spaces, the places in peaceful resolution
Show the solutions to your fearful heart
Kindness is my sceptre held before me
I dream it’s goodness in a dervish dance
What is chance but the blessing of possibilities
Laid on the altar of your life’s wholeness
Joy is your boldness, Love is all you need
War can not survive my breath
Violence quakes to stillness in my passing
Corruption dissolves to goodness
Humanity trembles away the hateful heart
Differences are met without fear
Fear lets light caress her darkness
Darkness comes to know her light
The fright of yesterday finds joy in the new dawn
I am she who reminds you of your wonder
that what is under your fear is love
Reminds you of your goodness
Reminds you that you are they and they are you
and you are all together forever
I walk the land as loving kindness
I am your finest self
I am your grand reflection
I am the you you dreamt into being
I am holding your hand

What needs you to let it go?
How is your ‘castle’ holding up these days?
Can you do it sacred?
