How To Feel Precious

[a New Moon ritual]

close your eyes

picture rose-gold light

feel its warmth on your

eyelashes like sunshine

catch a whiff of honey-

suckle, let it fill your nostrils til

it tingles, you are


you are sickeningly sweet

hear the cadence of waterfalls

in the distance

now hear it echo inside your

chest, you are an


you are holy water

now open your eyes

but don’t lose the rose-gold

don’t drop the cadence

don’t let go of the honeysuckle, honey

stand to face yourself in a

mirror, naked

see yourself unravel

see your eyes as galaxies

see how it feels to be alive

it feels just like velvet, you are

being held

you are coveted
