My chest rises and falls as I allow my body to melt into the sandy arms of Pachamama; Mother Earth.
She is the Mother who has never left us.
Our heart beats synchronize.
Recalibrate as Grandfather Sun warms my shoulder blades and invisible wings.
My Brothers and Sisters of the Wind and Sea sing to me.
Welcoming me home.
A salt-filled tear streams down my face and into my Mother’s hands as I remember
I am one.
I am whole.
The Sun. The Sky.
The Earth. The Moon.
The Sea. The Wind.
The Sand. The Stars.
This is my family.
A Seagull calls, “I love you,” off shore.
My face smiles as my heart expands;
open with gratitude.
