A puff of air, as we sailors call it
rippled the surface of the lake this morning.
My sister has had a touch and go year.
She’s hoping to be getting off
of a mean medicine this month
that has kept her energy low.
I painted the two of us sailing our boats, side by side
Free in the wind with her hand on the tiller.
The painting is a shamanic healing,
going into the void and choosing a high vibe,
pulling us back into what we love,
as our sails fill with a puff of air!
