Bliss  by Nancy Schatz Alton

I step into the space

I make it soothing, sacred


a place to linger, listen

spiral & breathe

I breathe here

becoming who I once was

I read

in reading my words

the world is a stage

it’s calling me back

my girl who yearns to perform

to hold the space

let the words wash over us

until they make something new

a space limitless

where the words rearrange

our atoms

until we are OK with the now

who we are

& who we will become


soothing sacred

we linger here

make a clean space

inside ourselves

dusting off time’s dirt

sweeping ourselves

onto a mysterious path

a continual arrival

we spiral

into ourselves

glad to meet again.
