Heartshine

We come to the table
With hearts full. We are
Nothing if not overflowing.
It’s as if we have been
Split open from the sternum
And speak only in hums
Understanding the sentiment
Perfectly. We are women who
Rise and gently fall onto our
Own two feet, who fall in love
With honesty and who let go
Of love with honesty. We
Tend to each other, like when
You said that the grass is greenest
Where it is watered. We sip
Knowledge from one another and
Give credit where credit is due.
I am not me without you.
Our fullness that expands
Only to empty allows space
For the newness to enter.
We are the women that
Love, we are the women
That give, but only
After taking.
