Beyond Darkness

Close your eyes and go back

far back to those prenatal

times when your world was warm

and liquid and dark, and all that

you heard was the heartbeat of

a mother’s love


Go back, and remember there

was comfort in the dark.


Reach down, deep; go deep beyond

the sandy layers of the soil; smell the

fertility that abounds.


Go deep, and know there is

Life in the dark.


Move beyond, stretch your mind

beyond the centuries of illusion,

embrace the dark, sweet savor of

your race, like newly ripened fruit.


Open your mind, to the beauty of the dark.
