The sacred space

Chilled to the bone
She was
Didn’t matter
How many layers
Were applied
The ache remained
Tiny icicles formed
As her tears fell
A little diamond trail;
That should you follow
Would lead you to
A hell hotter
Than the fires of redemption,
She slowly collapsed
To shatter
A million shards
Lay unrecognisable
A gigsaw of parts
The sum of which
Could no longer
Resemble who she was
These tiny gems
From which a river flowed
The depth of grief
Such that should you go to
Step in
You would drown
This watercourse
Emptied into a sea
Turquoise blue
No horizon
For the sky had gone
The heavens hid
The stars no longer shone
But the moon had not abandoned
This fractured one
It beamed in full glory
Waxing and waning
Patiently waiting
When the sands of time recede
Duality reigns
Both moon and sun
Sit high in the sky
And it is here
That she can learn
To be
Each fragment
Evaluated to understand
Keep or discard
And in this way
She came to know herself
In a new light
Sadness still dwelt
But no tsunami threatened
She had space where
She could choose to fill
With any manner of
Thoughts or feelings
In itself
This idea created excitement
Her heart thrummed
Her soul tingled
Body swaying
Feet moving
A mandala of such beauty
Was drawn
Renewal had begun

Artist's Description

grief can consume and take over where numbness to anything else is felt. but i believe that in time one can find a place for this pain and allow other thoughts and feelings to coexist…
