How to Heal


I seek refuge
in silence, in the night
sky’s bounty of stars,
like candles in every window
guiding the traveler home.
Each is a wish I send up
from heart to universe.
But will it come true?

I seek answers
in abundance, all the miracles
I already possess: family
& friends & health & self.
Love is not a thing you find
but one you create
from the inside.
What more do I need?

I seek healing
so I pay attention, and
laugh, and remain open to
connection. My body’s vibrations
align with those of my thoughts:
this positive frequency
is twice as strong when shared.
Our hopes rest in one another.
