Bodypsalm for Life as Art

by Dobee Snowber

“Dancing on Top” by Dobee Snowber

Celebrate life as an artistic practice
live your life as if
you are strolling through a garden
treat weeds with compassion
prune what disturbs the vital from growing
Tend your life
as you tend seedlings.

You don’t chastise
the geraniums or poppies
for not growing fast enough
or having the right color –
they are the color they are

Embrace the colors of your own life
both past and present
Trust the ingredients which nourish

You do not need to force
the rain to come
it will announce its wetness on its own
your work is to remain
tender and spacious
turn over the soil of your heart
for the unknown to bloom.
