Eyes Wide Open
Awareness is a powerful step on our journey of growth. Alone it offers understanding, expands perspective & can bring relief. Yet, if we stay here, residing solely in its light, our growth is stalled. Awareness in many ways is the pre-cursor to change. However, the departure point takes flight in our choice.
Today’s Saturday poem emerged for me as I contemplated my own dance with awareness & choice.
May it inspire you to lift & expand your gaze, wherever you’re at in your current experience of transition.
Eyes Wide Open. A poem by Cathy Saunders
You whisper to me in the dark; look here; see?
I feel the pull & tug; yet darkness remains
I settle into the hum of deep resignation
Awake in my despair
Curled in flesh
Yet you call each night; patiently awaiting the return of my sight
For now, I stay; choose here for awhile
No longer blindly traversing this dark passage-hall
Light shimmers, I blink,
Was that there? or
Was it just a glare?
Pardon me, if you catch me stare.
I feel, I look, I smell, I touch.
My faith falters not; No longer does it ride blindly in the dark
I can see; eyes wide open
What choice will be awoken?
As always, remember as much as this is your journey to travel; you do not need to travel alone!
