Sooth Aware – 12 NaPoWriMo

This word pairing prompt drew out an intense poem for those of us with high intuition, connector personalities, sometimes called “Empaths.” What works best to protect myself is to rock, read, write, rest. My soothing sanctuary is an off-grid 140 year old homestead with a woodstove, rocking chair, and a book/journal shelf. Find your sanctuary. Day 12 NaPoWriMo.

12 Sooth Aware

Sooth Aware

For Empaths.

Our feelers reach out
like the roots of an Aspen tree
reading faces
absorbing energy around us
intuition radiant
we connect
we love
we heal others.

Our compassionate hearts ping
and ping and ping.
Weight of empathy
can overwhelm.

Sooth awareness
with breath,
connecting to our own mood.
Find sanctuary
from the swirling seas
the school of fish.

The world needs us
but not today.
Not Saturday.
That is our day.
Me day.
