Art by Jasmin Small

Let yourself be whole now 

With your hands in the Earth 

Your feet in the crystal shallows 

Your core grounded and unshakeable 

Let yourself be swallowed 

Taken entirely 

By the evanescent tide of you as complete 


With no gleam or hesitation 

Saunter on 

To the greatest motion with no name 

Where you do not have the answers 

Only the tools 

To carve and make space 

For your wholeness 

To breathe
