This Girl Unravelled
Kathy Parker – Writer. Poet. Spoken Word Performer. Survivor. Warrior.
Beautiful but with a very poignant ring to it.
Crisp air hovers between ancient dunes
Saltbush greens the red sand
Silence quieter than your heart beat
Few know these places
Souls of long vanished tribes people and explorers call out
Dingo howls drift through empty space
Campfire hurls red and gold fingers into the night sky
In that sacred space, in that holy moment
I think of you
Occasionally a person imprints upon your soul
And you know you are forever changed
Something of inestimable value awakens within
Power and emotion that cannot be contained by words nor restrained by circumstance
Your words have once again touched my soul, Kathy.
I have always considered that pause between breaths as the most sacred place my soul whispers its wisdom to me. Tonight, reading your beautiful words describing loving someone “…in the spaces In the pauses between breaths” gave me goosebumps, took my breath away, and brought tears to my eyes. Yes, this was more than a whisper! Your words viscerally shook me to my core. I sit here stunned, wondering if it is indeed possible that my heart is finally ready to love again, after being so guarded for 12 years?
With much gratitude, Michele
What absolute beautiful words Michele, and I am beyond humbled my words reached into your most guarded places. Much, much love ❤️
