Slipping into my meditation,

Anxiety tight in my chest,

Depression in the periphery

Waiting patiently for her turn,

I ask:

"What do I need?"


Comes the answer.

I send my roots down, deep

Into loamy Earth,

Into the Mycelial web

That connects root to root

Plant to plant

Tree to tree

Pain to love

Grief to joy.

Incense smoke begins to rise

In gentle spirals,

Expands into shiitake caps,

Playfully dances into gentle hearts


Sacred healing symbols

Reminding me

That connection


Within me.
