Rebirth


I.

don’t fear the wind

allow it to move you

gently beyond

when you feel rooted

 

II.

don’t fear the sun

watch bodies glow

under rays of gold

to turn off monotone

 

lie in your sweat

imagine it cleansing

when you feel impure

 

III.

don’t fear the earth

dig your nails into mud

feel roots on your skin

to ground yourself

 

elicit an unborn seedling

plant in your mind

a reminder of rebirth

 

run through fields

remember your imprints

and their ephemerality

 

IV.

don’t fear the sea

let the waves embrace you

mimic them

when you hold loved ones

 

let your body float

remember the feeling

when you need to detach

 

watch a whirlpool from afar

learn the sublimity of chaos

when seen from a distance

 

create ripples with your hands

embody this motion

when you feel powerless
