Diving for Pearls

July 24, 2021

The way, within us, the grit 

forms the pearl. You know how this goes.

First the irritation. Something is not right!

And then the way we learn to soothe—

to grow something new from the seed

of what agitates.  

*

The way the sting

can be a medicine. Or a toxin 

an intoxicant that reveals

the God inside. Or the piercing 

the entry place for a new song. 

*

Dive into that sweet ocean within

and find the treasure boxes 

spilling over with pearls! 

Bless the grit 

that brings forth 

your own magic. 

from the upcoming book “The Pearl Sutras”
