I sit mid bubbles and starlight,
Float on a wave of lavender
And wear wings of rainbows.
I don’t know where I am going.
The moon rises at my dawn
I know where I have been.
A path of baby toads and butterflies
Guides my steps as I shed my knowing
To explore what I don’t know
And embrace what I can let go:
Breath steadies my heart.
Hope braids energy up my spine.
I know what I know.
Mushrooms can be magic or deathly.
Tragedy can make us break us.
Death is not always easy, nor hard.
Time tests all of us, if not young, then old.
I take the only seed I trust, love,
And let it grow beyond what I can hold.
Only then can I truly let go.
Love elephant and want to go steady?
