return to center

i find myself craving
a return to center
a center with margins
with room to grow
protected womb-space
hushed and holy
a sacred place
where dreams can ripen
undisturbed

I do not have adequate words to describe the level of truth and the power of the emotions that this mandala and poem generated within me. I recorded thoughts somewhat reflective of these in my Morning Pages today, but with much less eloquence. Thank you for your radiant truth.

Love this.. it's so beautiful. I just unpacked a box of gemstones 2 days ago.. and you have inspired me to do some creative work with them. Can't seem to get away from this computer today.. so much to fill me up :-)
thank you for your beauty and wisdom

This is (pregnant pause, searching for the right word) -- radiant! Such a powerful image, thank you!

Ah yes, I am so with you!! Beautifully worded and imaged. I breathe them in deeply - the color, the space, making room within for sacred dreams.
thank you Stacy xox

Coming late to this as I've not been widely online lately. Both the image and the words - which fit together like glove and hand - are beautiful and speak deeply to me. Thank you.
