Remember the warmth of a wood fire
to warm you deep into your core of being.
Remember the sun that give you warmth and nourishes plants to grow
and give you breath.
Remember the sweet air in the woods, on the mountains,
on your sheets drying on the line.
Remember the gardens in your back and side yards
that gave you so much joy in the growing, the watering,
and the food nourishing you.
Remember your nourished body--you
choosing the delicious food to give pleasure and sustenance.
Remember each moment is a choice
to live, to grow, to be, to dance, to create, to know gratitude,
to feel sorrow, to live your whole amazing life.
My poem is inspired by Joy Harpo called "Remember."
