I have spent the past 10 weeks as a student in a Foundations class at the spiritual center that I belong to here in San Jose. Our final assignment was to creatively express what our key learnings were. Mine was the power of transformation. It is amazing what happens when you open up and let Spirit dwell within.

For my project, I created a Transformation SoulCollage tarot card (see the blog header image) and wrote a poem. We had to share our projects with our classmates, so I figured I would share mine with you as well.


Like a caterpillar seeking safe haven to change,

I continue my journey.

Stained glass in a sanctuary,

A cliff overlooking the falls,

Driven to transform – no choice but to be reborn.

As my spirt longed for the sky,

My old self disintegrated

Only to emerge winged and free to fly.

Cocoon, Forgiveness.

Metamorphosis, Grace.

Chyrysalis, Love.
