Let the birds take your clothes
Let the waves undo your holding back
Let the vines unravel your tired mind
And the earth savour your sweat and tears.
Let your stories burn off like rising mist,
As your past and the false floors of curbed self love
Dissolve into butterfly wings and fire flies
As your edges blur and your Planetary Self ignites.
Let the trees bathe your breath
Let the meadows embrace you
Let the mountains and the bees remind you
Let the sky flood in and allow the clouds to guide you.
Let your undoing be as total
As your becoming is beautiful –
And when the living world has climbed inside
Enough for you to feel four legs, scales and wings.
May you finally know yourself alive as all things –
Indivisible and responsible
Reborn into wholeness
Natural, Sacred and Wild

Think Like a Tree

Think Like a Tree 
Soak up the sun 
Affirm life’s magic 
Be graceful in the wind 
Stand tall after a storm 
Feel refreshed after it rains 
Grow strong without notice 
Be prepared for each season 
Provide shelter to strangers 
Hang tough through a cold spell 
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring 
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky 
Be still long enough to 
hear your own leaves rustling.

~Karen I. Shragg

A Great Sky


Above the mountains
the geese turn into
the light again
painting their
black silhouettes
on an open sky.
Sometimes everything
has to be
enscribed across
the heavens
so you can find
the one line
already written
inside you.
Sometimes it takes
a great sky
to find that
first, bright
and indescribable
wedge of freedom
in your own heart…
