Hello Again

In the summer of 2021, I wrote this poem. It has become an annual tradition of mine to return to it. I like to revisit the rawness. To reconnect with the sacred woman and the wondrous child within. To remember myself and to strengthen in trust of who I am. To continue saying, “hello again,” so that I may always know the sound of her voice…



— Hello Again —


There is a voice

that’s speaking now

from within me,

unfamiliar yet not unknown.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It is she,

who stood under the maple

and felt most at home.


It is she,

who found and carefully wrapped

the tiny bird’s skeleton

in a napkin,

and didn’t let their ridicule

destroy her reverence at delivery.


She who was more embarrassed

for them who did not hold it

in wonder and delight, like her.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s she who knows the Mother

has been here all along

watching, waiting, whispering.


It’s she who has been rising

this whole time,

and knows she will never stop rising.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s she who feels all the things

running through her veins

and, this time, is not afraid to share it.


She who is not afraid to consider this life

a responsibility, a gift,

a journey of spirit for the Earth,

a journey on earth for Spirit.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It is she. She is me.

Hello, again.
