When you surrender the very thing holding you back, impeding you from moving forward, clarity emerges. As bold and bright as the sun, the image is; but definitely something unimaginably crystal and new that one can be grateful for.
Where I may burn today
the sun will revive tomorrow,
urging me into medieval traffic
and meditative practices.
These city lights brighten in my head
just as this reluctant heart opens
and my eyes see you for the first
time not as flowers conceived by thought,
but as God intended.
