take my hand and climb with me…

two hundred and eighteen degrees: ‘habit to love…’

Receive ~ Alanis Morissette

two hundred and eighteen

Sunlight, spills. In solar, flares. My cup, runnith. Over. This land, has given. Me, back. To myself.


The time will come

when, with elation

you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror

and each will smile at the other’s welcome,


and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you


all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,


the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.


( Love After Love ~ Derek Walcott )


Now it’s time to regenerate…
