Open Your Hands To Me

Open your hands to me and I will fill them with earth.

Grounded and steady earth. Pieces you can hold in your hand so you can feel the steadiness in your feet. Soil so rich and fertile new life will instantly take root and an abundant landscape will come to be: to feed you, to hold you, to give you life, to let you rest. A place to open your eyes up to the beauty that is life. An inspiration to connect with every breath, snowflake and stone. Connecting you with a deeper cycle that threads through each moment; a force that feeds us and moves us in the unmistakable direction we need to be moving in.

Open your hands to me and I will fill them with earth and life.

Open your hands to me and I will fill them with stars.

Expanding dreams and open skies. The infinite wonder of atmospheres, galaxies, and universes. Questions that never end, curiosity that will always be, knowing there is no answer to the depths of possibility. A world to be gazed upon but never truly touched, leaving minds to wander in the wonder of creation. Atoms combining to make unique, rare beauty to admire in the distance. Stirring a hunger for the unknown, meaning and mystery of all things seen and not ready to be. Millions of pieces connected, shining a bright light to tell stories upon their sight. For the stars live in the sky, stir in the mind and warm the soul by touching the heart.

Open your hands to me and I will fill them with stars and mystery.

Open your hands to me and I will fill them with love.

Sweet, soft, slow and strong. Fast and wild like a river overflowing. Gentle and unending ripples above the depths of an ocean. Soaking into every corner, moving through every crack and crease, going deep into past, present and unknown. Leaving no part untouched, unloved, unfilled. A love that will saturate and stay, never to be rung out in the heat. A love that feels light to move in and be in every moment of every day. One that exists in both day and night, to carry you in dreams and move you through life. A love to be filled and felt in the depths of your heart, no need to lean on another. A rhythm and beat, flowing through blood and bones, through sound and everything unknown.

Open your hands to me and I will fill them with love and longing. TC mark
