Baptism

Baptism

As I approached the tree
She was waiting for me
Scrubbing brush in hand
A tub of suds
At her feet.
I’ve been waiting
She said
I knew you’d come
To the Tree.
First you must wash
Away all the debris
A baptism of sorts
To wash away
Your demons and doubts
To purge your thoughts
Cleanse your mind
And your soul
As you emerge
From your cathartic
Rebirth
Ready to begin
A-new.

Cathartic baptism. This is incredibly powerful Megan. I just love ritual cleansing with water.

It was completely different when I began, but as I wrote the themes of baptism and catharsis came to me. So I had to follow them. I was pleased with the result.
