It was cloudy once.
The sun in my stomach.
Like a cob web,
It absorbed others’ niggles.
A desire to heal.
But it didn’t know how to re-release
To transmute it.
So it became cloudy, heavy, sad.
The sun in my stomach lost its shine.
Then something had to give and
Cobwebs flew heaven-bound.
And something beyond life took it away,
in a miracle.
I let it go.
I didn’t realise I was letting it go.
I just woke up and there was a hole in my stomach.
Where my sun used to be.
Where my cobweb used to be.
And I looked into the child’s eyes and saw God.
For me to say that word,comfortably, is a miracle.
And my hole started to fill.
I could feel it- the lights.
Tinkles, sparkles, love- my child.
She filled it.
So now I have a sun again.
