The Gift of Chaos

With all that is currently happening in the U.S. and the world, I feel the need to reshare this poem, Visiting With Chaos.There is an opportunity in the messiness of life. Will we choose to be loving learners or give up to fear?

Thank you to Vita Brevis, The Modern Poetry Magazine for publishing my poem. Click on the link to read it. – Visiting With Chaos

Sending love and a reminder that you are not alone.

Shedding Shame

Willing my body to enter the room

a mountain of mortification on my back

being seen while craving camouflage.

 

Owning the me that showed up

failure and intention, the human package

tied up with a bow of expectations.

 

While seeking an empty seat,

I investigate shedding shame, cast off

of the past. Owning my skin before

molting of forgiveness.
