That which is impermanent attracts compassion. That which is not provides wisdom. Stephen Levine


Let my heartbeat be 
as visible as your tattooed ink.
Let my exhaled truth be as 
evident as a stream of steam
billowing in the snowy cold.
Let my intent imprint your soul
while I am
whispering the warm words of love to your heart.
Let the depth of my truth know the nourishment of earth
as we stand under the moon near a tarnished urn of past.
Let the sun feed the  
sturdiness of our  roots as I tattoo you
onto the pulp of my life.
