Into the deep I go searching for truth even if I search alone. Deeply looking for the wisdom of freedom and the joy of love. What does one take into the deep? Courageous silence.

Poetry Challenge Day 4: Healing Waters

Today I learned about the Institute for Poetic Medicine which focuses on the healing power of poetry. Poetry can be used to help treat physical and psychological illnesses. Poetic therapy is even used in hospitals. Inspired by this new knowledge I felt led to reflect on my own healing journey.

Water
Cleansing
the deepest part of me.
A balm within myself, touch me and make me
Whole & Holy.
