Darkness holds the Stars in Place...(edited) (c) kelly fitzpatrick

Abalone shell mirrors the sky

I pray

upside down

when I look deep within.

 

My eyes open my heart

and my breath inhales sunlight,

the Spirit of love.

 

Light in the sky reflects in my heart

and sings a bird flying

as I exhale

joy.

 

While I know what I know

and don’t know what I don’t,

I wonder.

the horizon deepens and darkens

beyond.

 

Crows fly around me

Above me,

landing on the wind,

pausing and watching,

dusk circles.

 

Darkness comes near

Stillness

lengthens time

and enters my soul.

 

Fear

chases me

but cannot land

through the circle

of crow protection.

 

Abalone moon rises.

Stars

appear.

 

Joy turns somber

watching for dawn

in the long, narrow night.

The hope of the crows settles near me.

    Kelly, what a beautiful meditative poem! I love the way in which your theme, tone and picture blend so harmoniously. My favorite lines -

    Darkness comes near

    as stillness

    lengthens time

    and enters my soul.
