The Knowing Place

Painting Titled: "There is room for all off it" 

Painting Titled: "There is room for all off it" 

Today I give thanks for the Knowing Place
The place in my body that is aware
Long before I can form cogent thoughts
Long before I can explain why 

It says over and over again 
This is the way it is...
This is the way it is...
This is the way it is...

Until my stubborn wall crashes down 

And the tender reality is left 
naked and exposed 

And then I curse the Knowing Place 
for making me so profoundly uncomfortable 

But in time, eventually,
I find gratitude 
And for a sweet moment 
I give credit where credit is due 
Before I scoop up the story of the Knowing Place 
And claim it as my own
