Peace, one and all…

This skin of mine,
which bears the weight of the sun’s flame
and the storm’s water-borne fury,
is in truth a gateway between worlds.

It is the living earth of this outward realm,
made from the very bones of Gaia
ground to dust
and joined in hope with the spirit’s fire.

It is a curtain of night
drawn across the vault of my inward skies,
as all that arises from within
reaches out in hope towards its source.
