The Chasm

Sometimes living poetry
Is like looking into a deep, dark chasm
I see nothing
I feel nothing
Yet I know something is out there
In there, within the darkest depths
And suddenly and without any explanation
There I just step
Falling, falling, falling
Into a place I know not
To a destiny I know not
Yet I feel the air around me growing thicker
And there is a slowing of my descent
And I feel my wings getting stronger
Strong enough to simply put them forth
And the air builds up below me
And now I am headed back up towards the lights
Able to see where I just journeyed
Seeing creatures and creation like never before
Seeing myself like never before
And it all started at the edge of a dark chasm…

In the way a drop of water
Changes the desert in ways unseen
The earth vibrates with the life that it brings
And there is resonation
There is a sound
That moves on throughout the universe
And it brings us into rain
I hear the thunder
In the droplet that fell
I see a well
That pours out upside down from the skies
By Love I have been mesmerized
It has fallen on the earth
