Worthy Garments

by Valerie Dearling


A child of the universe,

not of this earth.

This body of clay worn

since conception and birth.


We cover our bodies

with colours and shapes

as we cover our windows

with curtains and drapes.


That deeper part

we call spirit or soul

cannot be hideen

whether damaged or whole.


In the greater kingdom

we call 'up above'

the only garmets worthy

are goodness and love.

by Heather Atta


I opened

The door

And the light

Then

Came in

It bathed

My

Outsides

And it bathed

My

Herein

It soothed

As it glowed

And it

Lit up

My soul

It joyed

Me

Employed

Me

In being

My whole

It gave me extensions

Into

The unseen

Became

An invention

Of being

Part dream

It stroked me

Invoked me

To explore

All of how

And seeing

My being

As living

In now
