I’m standing at the edge of a lake
The warm water lapping at my feet
My menstruating years on the bank on which I’m standing.
There’s something in the air
A gentle breeze
A sniff of completion.
At 44 I relish this ease
It’s gentler than I thought
No drama, no resistance
Just nature taking her course
‘Yes’ whispers the wind
‘Yes’ rustle the trees
‘Yes, yes, yes.’
There’s a smidgen of reflection
The ghost of what was.
And as the noise of the last chapter fades,
There’s this feeling…
Yes. It’s Love.
Gently, strongly, softly.
There’s nothing to do.
I don’t need to dive in.
I can just BE.
My body will change.
My womb will transform.
All of this I know.
And then there’s this….
The deep, rich ground of not knowing
The erotic silence
An invitation from The All and Everything.
‘Yes’, I whisper from deep inside, ‘Yes’,
And the warm water gently laps my toes.
