I lay asleep

Not knowing I was cloaked in darkness


Whispers kept me fearful, separate.

I shook awake, trembling

I saw myself glittering and radiant

I remembered how to breathe

How to pray.

I started to walk in a different way

Softly on the belly of the mother under my foot

I reached for the stars, into the cosmos and

My heart began to beat

Pulsing blood

There was an explosion of light

A recognition

I took off flying

And remembered God.
