Return of the Illumined Starfish



from years of

standing tall,

standing strong,

standing alone,

hiding the vulnerability

closeted in the sweet depths of a gentle heart.

Without question,

you picked up the standard

to protect

the young,

the wounded,

the forgotten.

Now is time to stop;


Revel in green quietude

and blue waters.

Take in all you need.

Feel nurtured,

and comforted as

the stars  spin and tumble

you, a starfish

in a waterfall of aqua light

returned to your flexible wholeness

and shining magnificence.

And so it is.
