Afloat…

I wait to be light….✿Rumi

light and darkness

I’m not really anything,
but a soul
afloat in a sea of flesh,
experiencing contrasts of light and darkness,
love and hatred,
war and peace,
trying to clamber my way back to you.
craving reunion…

I was with you before the foundation of the Earth
when my soul was pure
and unschooled…

I descended into form
wanting to be sentient
to be moved
to be given choice
to become the likeness of you…

Gravity kept pulling me back
to my earthen roots
to my soul’s evolution…

with love as my only quest,
I have been able to see
with the eyes of my heart,
that in the depths
of terrible affliction
sacredness truly exists…

I am washed
in translucent starlight,
arrayed with invisible wings,
and each time I return to light
I am grounded
again
in the truth of being…

should I be purged
of all darkness,
or should I just keep remembering
from whence
I came? …
