A Promise for Today

 

“Waking up this morning,
I smile.

Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.

I vow
to live fully
in each moment
and to look at all beings 
with eyes of compassion.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh

May we treasure each new day, and may your day be beautiful. 💜

 

Metamorphosis.

Swathed
within the confines
of her tendrils
Cocooned
by the veins
of trepidation

the constraint
of knowledge

of an image
of that which
she was meant to be.

Achingly
she fights
sinews stretched
tendons taut
‘tween flesh and bone
Shattered
is her strength
Dissolved
are her fears
and the form
she once knew.
She awakens.

With wings spread, she flies away…

…and does not look back.
