It is safe to fall

It is safe to fall
for you have wings that make empty air a living net

It is safe to burn
for we burn every day, in each body’s cell

It is safe to drown
emotion, intuition cannot harm us.
It is safe to float, to give your weight to Mother Ocean like a child.

It is safe to stand
in your truth
and trust the Earth to hold you and the Sun to nourish you, growing.

It is safe to turn
for movement is life, and dance is joy becoming itself.

It is safe to love
for every beat, cell, heart, root and leaf
knows the way.
