I like the contradictoriness of nature.

Standing in the forest

Engulfed in stillness

And the buzz of life.

I have learnt that vulnerability is a strength

That you cannot separate light and darkness

And to trust is risk

To love is to be open to hurt

That grief is healing

An inextricable part of growth.

To live and move forward

Is to let something die

As it does

It provides richness

To the new thing growing.


Your shit becomes fertilizer.

Life from death

Light from darkness

Healing from pain

Stillness and vibrancy

God speaks in the quiet place.
