Remember, hearing the call of your sweet soul,
a place intuitively known,
seeing the deep dark path leading the Way?
Remember, the movements we made,
arriving to this imaginative place,
and the pulsations we felt in our hearts
upon our grand entrance of severance?
Remember, the stories we shared,
illuminating the many voices of us
and the red basket we so tightly weaved
cradling our wildest visions?
Remember, Mystery swirling about,
alluring us towards the edges of our dreams,
as Fear sat in the center befriending us,
symbolically revealing our departure?
Remember, the compassion we expressed,
through the prickly-thorny inner and outer landscapes
and the sounds we echoed,
and the rhythmic beats created,
taking our place here on Earth.
Remember, the wonder we felt,
dancing with the unknown
as the natural world served as witness
to the vow we made at the threshold.
Remember, the desert’s twilight purple sky?
It is here, in this place,
where the imagination beckons us,
to dance with the Magic of possibility
and to greet each moment
in our wholeness.
It is here, where Mystery leans in and whispers,
