Where You Find Yourself is Always at the Center

A poem on pausing to savor and create.

Let the burn of life
form you like a kiln.
As clay to potter’s wheel,
spin into each new shape.

Pause in the forming
silence
finding yourself
always at the center
between 
contracting 
and expanding,
in breath
out breath:
the time to savor.

Life’s transformative 
energy 
creates a thousand
new doorways
(for you, here)
transcending 
time and space, 
body and love,
breaking heart
beyond nonsense
and noise
molding 
more permeable 
malleable 
matter
into being.

In this pause
become available,
allowing beauty 
and mystery 
to prevail. 
Be like the artist
not always knowing 
what magic will unfold,
creating at each turn
even inside oneself.
