Wider Spaces

In all beginnings dwells a magic force
for guarding us and helping us live.
Serenely let us move to distant places
and let no sentiments of home detain us.
The Cosmic Spirit seeks not to restrain us
but lifts us stage by stage to wider spaces.
-Herman Hesse, from Master Ludi

wider spaces

I stared out
at the Cosmos,
and felt my spirit move.
Waiting in the wings too long,
what was I trying to prove?
“I am enough”
a small voice said
echoed in tones of grace.
Guided by light and love,
I entered
Holy gates.
The canopy of stars above
were diamonds
in the sky.
“Can memories of childhood change
in the twinkling
of an eye?”

Little ones
were kneeling,
on the banks of time.
Gathered in ageless huddles,
with no reason or rhyme.

I was taken to the outer reaches,
where imprisoned souls dwell
Swept by toxic fumes,
self condemnation
had me in its spell.
Then I saw,
that I was made for good,
in the depths of the earth.
Known long before its foundation,
beyond my earthen birth.
As I plunged into the abyss,
scales fell from my eyes,
and the husk disintegrated,
throughout my disguise.
A death of attachments,
that were chained
to my heart.
In tearful surrender,
I knew that
I’d been set apart.
In light and love,
I transcended
with grace guiding the way.
A journey to the center,
where images are as clear as day..



I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
