Maybe Shine

The door of possibilities cracked open
Light floods in
Billions of opportunities
Too many colors to consider
Dazzled and frazzled
How to know which wavelength is yours?
This little light of mine
And how
And for who
To shine?


a motionless falling backward
into the dark abyss from which
all life emerges

A time
for obliteration, surrender
from the buried seed of my silent mind
I will choose my nourishment

Then thoughts
like baby green sprouts
bursting toward the surface for light
and exchange of gases

I will form myself again
