the cup of belonging

The expansive warmth in my
chest tells me
“I am here
I’ve done well
This place knows me”

In this moment
the young child and the old
man of me
join hands, look deeply into the eyes of the
now of me
and say with one voice

“Thank you for trusting
us. We are at
peace. Go now and drink deeply from the cup
of belonging
dance madly before
your goddess
take your place in the family
of wild beings”
