rising up the dark places
where you fear to walk
questions the endless chain
there in that eternal void
that calls out across divides
lies the locus of change
painful shards the walkways
heighten awareness within
spirals the longing release
that moment when the sun
breaks through purple clouds
streaks across tears marking
the path to freedom calls
and you there simply smiling.

even in the tearing so divine
is the presence waiting
with small moves forward
out from the darkness grows
to crawl upon the warm sands
take that first breath deeply
stand tall, arms outstretched
for after being full, led by
Spirit into and out of
the wilderness’ hold
tested and driven to bear
a new essence of truth emerged
forever surrounded by angels
