Dear Curiosity Journal,

For those who carry motherhood

With a bleeding heart

May you find healing in Mother Earth

If you have been punctured by the skewer

Of expectation, disappointment, or abandonment

May you find a tourniquet in the spinning life of Spring

If you have been washed away by the salty tears

Of grief, loss, or bewilderment

May you find oneness with that ever-cycling Water

And may you swim to the surface

May you smile into the sun
