Embark.

13 February 2014

Emerge with me. From dark to day, to light.
We have too long slumbered from ourselves.
A flood of dawn, the morning birds to flight.
The new ones just erupting from their shells.

And look and look at all this newness here!
This growth and shining light and bursting life.
I cowered once. A lifetime’s draught of fear
drunk madly at the bladed edge of night.

I’m done with fear. I’m done with shame and guilt.
This breath we breathe, our heart that beats, this song
intoned in skin and blood and lips has filled
the stillness: ringing, hopeful, brave, and strong.

Embark with me, my darling! Stranger shores!
My past is meek. But, love, our future roars.

    Wow! You have so many talents. Are you still working on your symphony or is it finished?
