Filling Voids

Life persuades you to other places,

uprooted and thrown to the wind.

Landing… a mystery of unknown quality,

endured without a choice.

For ever hopeful I wait, bright eyed, I absorb.

Surprises unpredictable , another world promising,

new doors to open, if I choose.

Aquainting myself slowly , my heart responded

to home?…Womb – like forest held me to its breast .

I suckled willingly ,eager for sustainence,

here I found a way to balance ,redressing voids unfilled.

Nature the great healer , and many kind folk to hold my hand.

A few years of childhood , cherished , nurtured ,enriched,

a life saved , a spirit strengthened.

Balance, like the nodding great treefern suspending its weighty load,

within moist shroud .

Ruffled by mountain air caress, to release laden frond of snow surprise,

just moments before the scales were tipped , levitated and expectant of fate.

The voids are no longer empty , but are being filled

with gentle love ,unconditional and unassuming….I was blessed.

My spirit saved and still chasing the magic of my dreaming,

a forest covered mountain proffered sanctury and renewal.

Well watered youth , flourishing despite constant depletion ,

life flowed and I drank thirstily , hoarding for my unseen tomorrows

and now full circle , I am once again home….but never again,

alone …………………………..
