The Holy Initiation
Updated: Jun 7, 2019
Where are you embarking to, my dear one?
How did you come to be both close and far?
With eyes wide shut, your vision healed a scar.
I have run like a forest-dweller in places unheard
Of to understand this type of magic.
And I have wept other-worldly tears in crowded basements to
Praise your paradoxical taste.
All this longing has brought me nowhere—
What a mystery arrangement!
All this pain has brought me space—
What an unfathomable realization to behold!
When I ended, you began; no story did unfold.
How could this be?
I will share with you, in a secret or two:
Without identity, without masks or hidden
Agendas, the divine heaves through
Like a breath held in for far too long.
And life speaks volumes in a heart
Ready for something new.
