“Rummaging in our souls, we often dig up something that ought to have lain there unnoticed. ” ― Leo Tolstoy
THE LABYRINTH OF HER SOUL
When you take a moment to see
you will be met with a smile at the gate.
But the gate will slowly close
and you will feel the true taste of rain.
Swallowed by the depth
of the meandering path
you will feel the river of sorrow
wide as the Nile, you might drown.
A valley of calmness as hypnotic
as Sahara’s sands,
Mt. Everest of overcoming,
and the Grand Canyon reflecting
a million of tiny deaths.
You’ll feel the layers of fierce energy
in the gaze of a hungry bear and
gentleness as if touched by a newborn’s hand;
the mindful journey of a solitary soul
rooted in the center of deep, deep soil.
Perhaps you’ll get lost
in the labyrinth of her thought but
only when you take a moment
will you know.
Know her Soul.
