Beautiful Soul

cattailBeautiful Soul

Long ago the heart of God
like a cattail beside a pond or river
cracked and split
spreading its life over all that was.

The womb of God
like a milkweed in the meadow
burst open
bursting followed by birthing
as the silken spirits fell and grew
in the fertile fields of creation
recreating love
sending sprouts of joy
throughout the universe.

The sun discovered daffodils and sumac
as a Mourning Dove hunkered down
in the snow under a pine.
The icy snow that could destroy her is – for now –
her protector.
Her beautiful soul finds shelter within the breast
of the beast that threatens.

Isn’t that the path of a fearless heart?
