By Eva Kroes (Netherlands)
Solidify Before You Fly
Unraveling this mystery of me
Is a truthful undertaking
Rising to my root
To travel the core beyond my creation
Nothing to lose but the way that I was
Lying dead on the road ahead
I seem a renegade rafter
In a time long last and before
The self sovereign
And the self less necessity
Tasting my tongue still to touch on the tissues of matter
Solidify before I fly
Rooting to rise
To ripen before
Becoming the seed of life sustaining it all
