April PAD Challenge: Personal Mythology Prompts Day Eleven - Limitation

Poem #11

Thank God
I am not my body
or my mind:
both have been broken
unlike my spirit self

  1. So powerful in its spareness, Kirsten. My thoughts are full today of a friend who is floundering thru the first weeks of a cancer diagnosis. Your presence and spirit are an inspiration. Blessings.

  2. Thank you, Wendy.
    All the best to you and your friend.
