Choose Your Words

By Amba Gale

The wick in my candle
has grown so long during
these months and years of
cocooning, hibernation, lock down, break down,
re-imagining.

What is the ing word that you choose?

Sheltering,
healing,
grieving,
fearing,
worrying,
discovering,
learning,
re-setting,
pausing,
stopping,
serving,
practicing,
re-imagining,
kindness-ing,
giving gratitude,
living in wonder,
improvising,
inventing,
stand taking
breaking through,
contributing,
celebrating,
creating perspective,
learning,
giving Joy.

Choose your words, carefully.

Each word gives,
gives you your life.
Speaks,
speaks you
in this threshold coursing time;
speaks your meaning,
speaks your purpose,
speaks your life,
brings you and your world
into Being.

Imagine yourself a lake,     rained on by the clouds         There, you will know Fullness. Imagine yourself a stream,     being a bed for the salmon.         There you will know Birth and Death. Imagine yourself an ear,     listening to another’s heart.         There, you will meet Compassion. Imagine yourself a heron,     fishing the abundant water.         There, you will be Patience. Imagine yourself as a poet,     facing the blank, white page.         There, you will…
