A journey began in the depths of my core,
for I danced instinctively through an unmarked door.
From a union of two
And a yearning for more,
The flame gathered strength
The sacral center of being,
A spark burning bright,
Purging empty ego from this clouded sight.
And a light—
Shone a beacon of this view, anew.
My life, cut by a knife
to shape and mold the barren old
of whom once was a girl…
then woman… then wife.
Growth from within thinned the haze of the days of my youth,
As to clear the fear and the doubt
A small sprout…
So beyond, yet within me
Aimed to set us both free.
Stripped naked and weak,
Scattered pieces from the peak
Of what was real.
Now an illusion…
Now the fusion of two lives.
What of me survives the birth
of a mother as her child thrives?
A being emerges
From the surges of birth
and from it a purified woman’s self-worth.
Purges the path for her child to dance
his own Earthside miracle of mystery and chance.
The present presents in a spiritual realm
Gratitude sublimely abound,
Entranced by the purest of love to exist,
…. The past never missed.
And life forever divinely enriched.
