Becoming More You

The bubbing water

fills the air

opening the door

to bird songs floating

above and over the sky.

If you listen closely,

you might hear your

own song blending

and floating along

rejoicing in being set free.

Open — alive— you—

filling your heart space

becoming more you.


We must listen for the song that hides deep within yearning to be set free. But, you must first open your heart. Natalie Goldberg reminds us,

” . . . love this life because it is ours and in the moment there is nothing better.”

And always—

Be kind. Be brave. Be you.
