WP September 13th, 2020: Saucha (cleanliness)

Would you banish the dust specks from a ray of sunlight?
Where would you send them?

What names do you give the creatures
that cling to your eyelashes?
Have you ever heard them sing
for you?
A lullaby?
A lament for your dead cells?

What goes and what stays in the ecosystem of your skin?
What do you do with the bathwater?

Where is there a space for spiders in your house?
In which corner do the dark spirits gather to dance?
What would the wind sing if they were all to leave?

On what patch of earth will you unpack your lunch?

How do you weigh the balance of a puppy’s kiss
and an impeccable soul?
