There are moments as we journey through transitions that can feel lonely, dark & heavy. We are innately whole. Yes, at times our experiences come through with contrasting qualities. And, it’s helpful to remember that as one shade appears, the other is equally present.
This poem emerged for me at a time when I was remembering this. Seeking guidance, hungry for direction, deep in the river, the Gap of transitions. My prayer, my presence was to listen. To write and stay open. The following poem is one of the fruits of that experience.
A Poem: In the Dark, Our Light is Ever Present by Cathy Saunders
I hear you
I feel you
Whispers , Shouts
The veil burns
Your invitation frightens me
What would you have me do?
Tarry no longer through the muck and mire
I am ready
I am willing
The cool, clear rush of your wisdom splashes my skin
The cool, thick mud nourishing my soul
You inspire & uplift in your heat Father Sun
You sparkle & reflect in your coolness Mother Moon
Move beyond the time of whispers
The delicate trance has broken open
I am here
I am listening
