Far From Knowing…

Far from knowing who I am

I discover myself daily.


All over this body I find

old rocks and ancient wells.


Scars and burns mark

twists and turns


along the way

to where dark chasms and deep oceans



and to the secret treasure chests


I left for myself

all hidden away

so I would find them one day


and remember This…

Great Jewel of my Being.

    Thank you Renee! I send an email most times I post a poem which is every couple of weeks or at least once a month… If you want to sign up for the email list, I usually offer a little deeper insight into the poetry in my emails too. Love.
