From a moment of transformation –
burst forth beauty,
and the existing knowing before the ages.
Then swept away
with the force of a torrent
I took my life.
I didn’t know.
All sides of me collapsed together
caving like ancient icebergs
eaten away by the recent century.
Washed upon the shore
I opened my eyes to view a new world,
one I had seen before
but not fully taken into my heart
enough to protect me for the torrent.
The practical side of life
turned me upside down
in spite of what I knew.
I want to stay on the shore
and pick up the pieces.
I want to pick up
the shards of light lost –
and plunge them into my heart
so I may see the beauty
and lost love that went unnoticed.
Lift me up again
so I may see that shore
so I may walk on its glass lit sands
squishing its rounded corners between my toes
feeling every part of my being and every aspect of its light.
I walk supported.
