KellyMcNultyLagoon of Life

By: Kelly Delesandro/McNulty

 

Swallowed inside the hidden lagoon

 

Shadowed by fallen branches

 

Hidden by deep rooted mangroves

 

A perfect hidden circle

 

Entrenched in its role of shelter

 

Its simplified purpose

 

Connected to the vein of more

 

The womb of the sea

 

Encased nurture

 

Not trying to be more

 

Existing as an interconnected web of life

 

Can the tadpole evolve into a fish?

 

Can I extend my wings like a butterfly?

 

Reaching deep inside the sea’s life

 

Revealing a sanctuary of growth

 

To grow to live inside the light

 

Sinking deep inside the mud

 

Caressing my feet

 

Burying my legs with its gentle power

 

Extracting the toxic energy

 

That holds me down

 

The ropes inside my soul

 

That block thy from letting go

 

Depleting thy essence

 

That extracts the nectar from thy vessel

 

Thy to is a vessel of life

 

A sanctuary of growth

 

A womb of nurture

 

Wanting to connect to the lagoon…

 

The beating heart of life

 

That exists…

 

That connects…

 

A fragment of the infinite Mother Gaia

 

Living its purpose

 

Simply existing…

 

To be something more….
