My body has a mind of its own,
And as much as I love me
and sometimes don't,
I feel like I am waiting
for some cracked door to swing open:
Come in, join me, I've been waiting for you.
A dear astrologer friend observed that
I had my head in the air
Having been born a Libra.
The rest of me having been liberated
from that realm
So as children sometimes say
"I am the boss of me."
And so, child-like, I need to plumb that unity:
the pulse of my heart, the scratch on my leg,
the ache in my back, the swirl in my mind...
that I might find my way
to being so self-immersed and newly rejoined,
And so to healing.
