Filed under: self love, self reflection

 

i feel like i have been meditating a lot on ‘longing’ and what it means in my life and in my body. as i write and share these pieces, i hope it frees up space to fully appreciate what i do have.  ultimately that  is my wish for me and for you!

open/ready
© 2011 by margaux delotte-bennett

my arms are open
ready to be filled
filled by 2 or more bodies
in need of comfort
in need of arms open
ready

my arms have been full
of books
and bags
groceries and flags
all manner and assortment of
stuff

but not bodies
bodies that know their place
can see their names etched
just below the surface
reserving their sacred space
in these arms
that are open
always open
and ready

right

on

time
