Lessons of Love Taught By The Land

March 21, 2019

1.

 

they are whispered in the wind

 

etched in the weaving valleys

 

and on the rolling tundra

 

 

 

they are sung in the rushing river water

 

and hushed in the crashing waves

 

 

 

they have always been here

 

for us

 

now the sun’s shining on your heart

 

illuminating these lessons

 

to heal you once again

 

 

 

2.

 

The Land beckons

 

But never begs

 

She calls with

 

Sweet sighs of the wind

 

But do not forget

 

It can so easily

 

Turn freezing,

 

Chilling to your bone

 

Defensive, casting away

 

With the same breeze

 

You once thought

 

Was meant to

 

Comfort

 

and

 

Caress you

 

 

 

3.

 

 

 

have you noticed your chapped lips

 

look just like the jagged mountains you are from

 

your dry, cracking skin mirror the shattering ice

 

your curves resemble the winding waterways

 

that provide joy and sustenance

 

your folds of the skin same as the rolling tundra with berries you feast on

 

 

 

once you see the ways in which you are

 

a reflection of the land

 

 

 

you can love yourself as you do the land

 

and you will stop hating the very parts of you

 

that reveal how much you have weathered,

 

you beautiful and striking life force 

 

 

 

colonial love

 

 

1.

 

my body is pulled

 

into your orbit

 

remembering all the longing

 

my mind tucked away,

 

because of the galaxies between us 

 

 

2.

 

even after all this time

 

your soul, smile, and words

 

melt the ice

 

that has packed away my heart 

 

 

3.

 

I settle, nestle into your nooks

 

so easily

 

I know the creak of the floorboards

 

of your soul

 

and they only sound to me like

 

home

 

 

 

 

4.

 

when you didn’t call

 

i turned to poetry

 

  

 

 

 

5. 

 

 

 

Conditional. Spatial. Incomplete.

 

 

 

 

The trauma in you

 

Mirrored the tragedy in me

 

 

 

Splintered homes, shattered trust

 

Our souls creaked in the same pressure

 

 

 

Sleepless eyes, silenced hearts

 

Time, dissonance

 

Miles apart

 

 

 

I ached for you always

 

Until it became evident

 

We were not each other’s

 

            Medicine
