Nourished: #Reverb13

Prompt:  What made your soul feel most nourished this year?
 I gulp down seasons
thirsty for transformation
for renewal and change

I bathe in moonlight
sprinkle myself with stardust
and clothe myself with nature

I slough away tension
with tree bark and stones
dry autumn leaves and pine cones

I shake off pain
like droplets of rain
filling myself with birdsong
and in these moments
in the breathing
 my soul is nourished
Sorry that I haven't been around as much lately.
Mum is visiting from the UK and its been hard to find computer time.


  1. Wow! I adore this poem. You have crafted such amazing word pictures. Bravo! (Enjoy your Mum's visit!)

    1. Thanks Brenda, having fun. It's been strange not being on the computer as much though.

  2. nice bit of a meditation letting go of the things that will hold us down, in learning to breahte it in...our soul will def find nourishment...

  3. Every season teaches us something and its up to us to absorb it. Lovely write up:)

    1. Thanks Vandana. I've come to realize that even the seasons that are my least favorite have something to offer.

  4. That is some serious soul food, Kathryn. x
