In pieces I fall, only to remain whole.
The sky has been extra beautiful lately. I think it’s because of the autumn cold, it makes everything clear and bright. I can see so many stars in the canvas over my house, especially now that the leaves have fallen, and I can gaze through the once covered branches.
In my wholeness, I am many.
I used to think I was one, but then I realized how fragmented I really am. I am the sum of my stories, each separate, complete on their own, yet somehow all blending into me. I used to think I was one, but instead I am a multitude. I am alchemy.
In my search for peace, I sought to remove the slivers of tales that still pierce my inner core. Only to find they have embedded in my dreams, with no hint of beginning or end, forever to reside in the velvet beauty of me. I am forced to live with the damage they have wrought, to allow my flesh to heal over sharpened tips. Like a rose, fragrant and divine, I am a gift, protected by my thorns.
In the light of day, I search the open sky, peering through the branches, I see nothing but bits of clouds floating by. The universe is filled with a multitude of stars, fragments of holy fire, all coming together to create the wholeness of celestial delight. Constellations and planets, dancing through infinity, each separate, complete on their own, yet somehow blending into one.

This is lovely, Raven. So happy to hear from you. Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving !
Beautiful. Beautiful and haunting. So much truth in this piece. Thank you for sharing from your heart. Thank you for opening the door for us to take a leap, as you have taken, to look inside and see it all. To know that we are whole even as we are in pieces. This line, “Like a rose, fragrant and divine, I am a gift, protected by my thorns.” Yes! Oh, and the photos – wow and thank you!
Beautiful words and images
