I sat in the base of three shadows
One drifted in the air
One touched the sun
One spread over the water
All three anchored in me – sinking in the sand

Surrounded by the remnants of summer that gently fell around me

My dagger embedded in Her breast – She embraced me – caressed me
Till I could feel Her warm red stillness
Sage carries her soft whispers to my ear
This is your home, where you are supposed to be
It all spirals out from here, endlessly
Can’t you see? – Can’t you just be?
And I was
