we stand strong
we who stand alone.
we are many yet
we are but one.
and we are not
detered by what
we move in all ways
in all directions
with and from
the light of knowing.
we see the beauty
in all that is
and all that expresses
we expand
in concentric rings
growing and growing
and overlapping.
we move into
and beyond
what is.
we expand the expression
of light that continues
and intersects with
and through
all space and time.
this light, the presence,
the essence,
we birth in darkness
from our breath.

One Response to “The Birth. ~ Jill Zekanis”

  1. It is very radiant and somehow resembles the light of the delivery table when I gave birth to my daughter. In fact, I am drawn to it. A ball of light I presume is the symbol for a new life in the horizon for me and my daughter.
