My True Face
In the crucible of my inner cauldron, I see:
My True Face.
A face of flame
Of gentle rain
and forest soil.
A face that destroys and transforms.
Conceals and reveals.
Softens and comforts.
A face in which dreams are planted
and deep roots take hold.
Sacredly held in cauldron’s embrace
for few can survive its seeing.
Showing instead my face only partial.
Waiting in hope that there will one day be
One who can see fully and still remain.
