Process of Illumination


Well, here I am.Adrift.
Floating in the middle of the Sea.
I am alone
On a raft
No one here but me.
The anchor had been severed
Thank God
But now the Lifelines, too.
Even the Beacon’s light is out
What am I to do?
The Moon is Full tonight
It Illuminates the air.
Still, no compass and alone
Edging toward despair.

Until the answer emerges
It has encircled me
Under the water
All this time
Like a shark
Waiting for me to
Relinquish all control

It rises up
Takes me down
To explore
Some more
So when it’s time
I’ll be ready
