Muddy waters take me in
Take me down to nourish my skin
Skin made tough
Skin made thin
Through life’s adventures
Through life’s sins.
So soak it up and banish all ills
Fill me deep, realign my will
A heart made true
A soul made joyful
A powerful voice
Now once again skillful.

I had not written much since last August due to a shoulder injury and due to a need to travel inward….a self-imposed time away. But on a sunny day in early April when I began my new journal habit, this poem flowed forth trying to break the ice damn that had built up. It was how I was feeling sitting in my garden waiting for it to wake up….and hoping my creative juices would do the same.
The pictures above is of my early spring pond a bit muddy, and below my later spring pond full of life and water lilies.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up, Poetry Pantry, for poets who blog.
I leave you with a few additional words about muddy waters. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
