Climb up the ladder to the cosmic mind
First step’s at the root of the spine
Lips find vertebrae
and meticulously trace
the pathways once called mistakes
Somatic kisses
uncover fragmented visions
and awaken a softness
long-abandoned
The nervous system
finds a new horizon
after turning off autopilot
An inner voice remedied its silence
joins a choir of birds
praising the holy sunshine
An abandoned inner child
once lost in a jungle
reimagines life
in a village nearby
