The Body Calls Us Home

Make a decision
to begin loving your Body fully and without apology

Make a decision
to embrace the many faces that you carry within

Make a decision
to bring all of the lost and forgotten parts of You
back into the faceted glimmering jewel that you are

Begin to remember
that your Body is sacred

Begin to remember
that you are made as a temple of clay from this earth,
held together with breath and dust from planets and stars

Begin to remember
that this Earth also lives as a some Body
and that as we are nourished by Thee
so this Life needs to be nourished by us all

Do not forget
that your Body holds a living library
of story and song about You

Read aloud and dance these histories
so you might come to Know
your ancestors and descendants
Those living , waiting and unborn
Who learn from your Body how to live
gathering, watching and seeing
what their lives may one day become

Most of all
never forget, that your Body
has never forgotten You
but sleeps like a lover 
awaiting your return

Wake up the Body gently
Call the Body Beloved
just as the Body calls you Home
