Indigo, Saffron, White, and Lovely



As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 
- Colossians 3:12-14


Clothe yourself with patience like your
Indigo linen pants flow down your legs
letting every wrinkle stay beautifully messy
cuffs caressing the floor just behind

Clothe yourself with compassion like your
saffron sari hugs your midriff
and moves with your belly each inhale-exhale
one with your breath your laugh your cry

Clothe yourself with kindness like your
white guayabera lightly hangs and breathes
reflects sunrays away so your skin
feels cool with the breeze and free

Clothe yourself with love like your
lovely skin drapes your bones protects muscle
sheds itself liberally when its time is spent
ever dying and renewing the body beneath
