her shade taken back

She tripped,
she fell,
he heard a sound,
he began to distrust the gods,
was she really behind him,
he desperately wanted to see her,
hold her,
whatever the reason,
when he does
she is gone.

THE DESCANSOS SERIES

Descansos,  all the things I said and did not say.

To quote Clarissa Pinkola Estés:
“‘Women have died a thousand deaths before they are twenty years old. They have gone in this direction or that, and have been cut off. They have hopes and dreams that have been cut off also. Anyone who says otherwise is still asleep. All the grist for the mill of descansos […] A body who has lived a long time collects debris. It cannot be avoided. But if a woman will return to the instinctual nature instead of sinking into bitterness, she will be revived, reborn. To make descansos means taking a look at your life and marking where the small deaths, las muertes chicitas, and the big deaths, las muertes grandotas, have taken place.”
