Her Own Path
(Inspired by the painting "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Elaine Sturm)
Circling towards truth
I follow the path –
a hawk in search of the highest point,
before shooting an arrow –
Milkweed fairies travel with me –
a dust cloud whirl of movement
Flickering beings trail after
with curiosity and wonder –
never revealing where they see me next.
I open my eyes wide –
seeing all of time in an instant.
Carrying this perfect pearl wisdom home,
I embark on the real journey
of me –
and come alive.
