Rumors

Standard

I have heard making pilgrimage to India,
to study asana, is like being broken-open.

The first month you are cracked;
the second you are rewired,
and the third you are pieced together new.

I have heard making pilgrimage to family,
to co-create human beings, is like being broken-open.

The first child opens you, raw;
the second rearranges your understanding;
the third confirms the mystery,
and the fourth pieces you together new.
