Evidence Of

Evidence of...

54.
I look at my wrinkles, sags,
furrow in brow
budding jowl
And  wonder
“Where did they come from?”

Then I remember:
I have lived!

I have loved
One
For three decades
Nearly four

Grown  babies
In my womb
Fed them,  held them
Let them soar

Traveled
Cities, Countries
Canyons, Mountains
Skyways, Shore

I’ve touched
Lives
Grand and grimy
Caressed new life
Adored
Felt hands slip from mine
To pass beyond this veil, to more

Joys and sorrows
Smiles, tears, frowns
Created wrinkles, sags,
furrowed brow, jowl

I AM art
I’m fine sculpture
Work of passion
Labor of Love

I have lived!
Fully embraced
I AM evidence of

Source of Life

Beneath the surface
Hidden from view
The essence
Source of life
Flows

Tap into its current
Dive into the depths
Connect
Wisdom/Knowledge
Grows

Send down roots
Extend crown
Heart light glows
