We Do Not Believe

A  L  O  H  A !

“ We do not believe

 in ourselves -

- until someone reveals
 that deep inside us 
something is valuable,
 worth listening to, -

- worthy of our trust, 
sacred to our touch. 

Once we believe 
in ourselves -

- we can risk curiosity,
 wonder, spontaneous delight 
or any experience -

- that reveals 
the human spirit.”
                   e. e. Cummings


Thank You
for sharing
Your Spirit!

I have always loved e.e. cummings. On this occasion he is wrong though. I don't believe in myself, but my curiosity, wonder and delight are very strong. Thriving even.
Love that plant.

...and yet people look at me goofy when I say I need a Muse in order to write!
