Encouraged by Our Healing

Encouraged by our healing we walk forward, holding our head high, acknowledging who we are now.

Yes, a little different in the shapes of our spirits. An affinity with being human, instead of that wounded animal snarling.

Our minds a little wiser and our hearts more willing to forgive.

In a sense a new creation. A wonder really of survival.

Wholeness, walking on two legs.

The Light Was Already Dancing

The light was already dancing as I walked into the woods today,

filtered through the leaves pulling me,

pulling…. my spirit further

into the healing. I stood

for a long time at rest, confident,

understanding finally

I was made,

part of the earth

part of the sky,

the sea.

And everywhere,

part of the light dancing.
