Venus And Earth Dance

The Most Beautiful Pattern

Let us take turns
offering our healings.
I will find all of your pieces
that have been shattered and scattered
and will put you back together with soft hands.
Breathing new life into your being.
And you will go into the dark underworld
and call me back to the sunlight above,
reminding me not to look back
but ahead.
I will let myself follow you home.
Let us wind together
honoring each other
while we lift each other off the ground.
Let us love one another like that
taking turns carrying the load of this life
when we become wary of the world.
I will bring blessed water to your dried lips
and you will share fruit you have gathered
to keep us nourished and fed.
Let us weave together in a gentle way
each admiring the color of the other
and the way our differences create the most beautiful pattern
that we could not share with the world on our own.
