Listen to me.
Love is all there is.
Nothing more is needed to be known.
So open your heart and, in the name of that love,
welcome every bit of life that awaits you.
Your purpose is to be present, minute by minute,
breath by breath, tomorrow after tomorrow,
to the end of time itself.
Breath by breath I am present as another beloved wise woman,
my mother’s little sister, breathes her last.
Ninety six orbits of the sun – she finally caught up, in earth-time,
with the big sister she was always chasing.
The last of the aunties of the Harrex line has left.
The cousins assemble. There will be celebrations.
She’d like that.
Ahhh, beloved Life. We give thanks for ancient aunties.
We remember their busty lavender loveliness as they hugged us close.
We give thanks.
