Today I Played

Today I played in a field

with my Self

We laughed, and ran, and held hands

communicating without words, the smiles on our faces said it all

Today I skinny dipped

with my Self

We stood atop the highest rock, and jumped screaming to the pool below

cold, exhilarating, alive, it took our breath away

Today I laid on a warm granite slab

with my Self

Closing our eyes we took in the light and warmth of the sun’s transforming rays

melting into each other, all boundaries dissolved

Today I became my Self

all the light and compassion and knowing I have so admired in Her

became Me, and I cried with tears of joy

realizing I had become the Me I have so longed to be
