Cusp: Solstice 2012

Everything we need now germinates inside.

Desire pricks like a thorn on grasping hands,

Connecting pain with what we want:

Creating just enough this time, to change

The stories trapped in amber:

Ancient insects, frozen sun.

The darkness unfolds secrets

Creating light invincible.

We can wake up to brilliance,

Giving dawn to this new day.

Somewhere, an elephant teaches calf to swim.

Fern fronds unfurl from ancient forest floor.

Bold violence fells another once again,

And we are left with anger, fear, and grief.

With chance to change or ever stay the same.

The gates of time will open:

Stand attention, time to choose.

The darkness unfolds secrets

Creating light invincible.

We can wake up to brilliance,

Giving dawn to this new day.

Let us seed hope.
