“The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to healing the world.” Marianne Williamson

The Key

She had long bright coloured ribbons in her eyes
with mind full of of multilayered conversations,
all covered in rainbow dots of confetti.
a palpable joy filled this beautiful space
as she rose to speak of near and distant shores,
where love was never consumed only given,
and life, where life was held as precious and sacred,
one doubter hung a long dark cloud of question,
but no shadow crossed the valley of her smile,
which lifted our long impoverished spirits,
offering that the key was in our own hearts.
