I wish for you a bright sun

to melt away all the places of your stuckness

so you can flow into the present with me.

I wish you nightmares

that wake you in a cold sweat

and the power to finally name

and embrace

your deepest fears.

I wish for you a friend

to weep with,

and a hand to hold.

I wish you poetry that sings to your soul.

I wish you such intense and fleeting beauty

that you catch your breath

and are afraid to blink.

And when you do,

I wish the newness

of this ever expanding present

to catch you up

and never let you go.

I wish you death

in the middle of your life

so that you can walk as partners

radiantly co-creating the moments you’re alive.

I wish for you the sacred knowledge

of all the invisible resources

your heart holds, all of your ancestors,

the spirits of the land.

I wish you talking rocks and sighing trees.

I wish for you a dance floor

and a partner who responds to your every cue

and a dance that twirls and spins

with so much joy

that everyone on the sidelines

runs in to dance with you.

  1. I’m moved to tears. Thank you for your words. They touch a tender place in my heart tonight. The power of this wish was granted simply in reading and connecting to the depth of the poetry.
