Desire

1goddess“My desire
is always the same; wherever Life
deposits me:
I want to stick my toe
and soon my whole body
into the water.
I want to shake out a fat broom
and sweep dried leaves
bruised blossoms
dead insects
and dust.
I want to grow
something.
It seems impossible that desire
can sometimes transform into devotion;
but this has happened.
And that is how I’ve survived:
how the hole
I carefully tended
in the garden of my heart
grew a heart
to fill it.”

“Desire”,  Alice Walker
