Sacred Self

Dive into the undercut

That shadow-place
where you can’t see the bottom

don’t be afraid

come out on the other side
the cave full of treasure you left behind
the myriad lights
of star-song
and bountiful harvests

you hid it there
long ago
and covered it in
pain and shame and fear

clear off the mud
wash it clean in pure water
wipe away the sludge
that which Shines is hidden there

treasure
your treasure

re-claim it
resurrect that which can only be found
if there is courage to wade through the mud
through the dark
through the uncertain

bless the mud and the sludge for keeping it safe
and release that which no longer serves
and keep that which has been forgotten

Sacred Self
Hidden in the Shadows
