Self Unto Self, A Poem of Reclaiming

Poem by Emily Hanlon on Nurturing One's SelfEmmy, My Love
Are you the darling twin I have longed for all my life?Have I sought myself inside myself,not knowingI am my own true love?
Who were we when we did not know,when fear strangled words,and sorrow dimmed the song?What visions did we seek, together alone?
I lay you down in the heart of the Mother Bear.
There, in the soft warm fleshI give you birth.Self unto Self, Emmy, my love.I am.
Walk with me nowin sweet days of innocence.I give you comfort,you give me joy.

Emmy 2

I throw you high into the air.Wheeee!You twirl, laugh free.The words come.

  1. this is really a neat poem.
    when I was a kid of seven I always knew I had an identical twin, and she lived in europe somewhere.
    and I would grow up and find her.
    we were exactly alike
    and someday we would meet.
    I would find her.

    what visions did we seek, together alone. neat.

    I lay you down in the heart of the Mother Bear.
    There, in the soft warm flesh
    I give you birth.
    Self unto Self, Emmy, my love
    I am. lovingly.

    I give you comfort,
    you give me joy. unity

    as I have been saying this blog is neat.

    again goodnight
    doris.
