04 – The Empress

How lovely it is
when you can shape
the world by creating
it in your image.

Life is pain,
birth is hard,
but it doesn’t
matter sometimes
in the exultant joy
of seeing
the fruit of
your labor
(literal or figurative).

Be open,
like a flower
or a cervix
or a camera lens
just at the point
before it closes.

Sometimes giving
feels more sustaining
than taking.
