tattoos

lately ive been finding myself
writing on my body
a smiley face here
a tiny heart there:

inking my intentions
onto Flesh.

we write our stories
we fill our worlds
with all it is
that helps us breathe.

floating along this river of life
looking for the reflection of home
in the starry night waters
God’s handwriting
guiding us on, leading us in

we’ve all got galaxies tattooed on our bones.
