Spiderweb Chrysocolla by Maile

It doesn't interest me 

if there is one God

or many gods.


I want to know

 if you belong

or feel abandoned.


If you know despair

or can see it others.


I want to know

if you are prepared to live in the world

with its harsh need to change you.


If you can look back with firm eyes

saying this is where I stand.


I want to know 

if you know 

how to melt into that fierce heat of living

falling toward the center of your longing.


I want to know

if you are willing 

to live, day by day, 

with the consequence of love 

and the bitter

unwanted passion of your sure defeat.


I have been told, 

that in this fierce embrace,

even the gods speak of God.

allowing you a window into its mysterious world...

Soothing the nervous system,
Opening the heart,
allowing for more spaciousness and awareness.
When I feel this green garnet on my skin
I there is a calming.
