Next Phase

The endless days of openings
on silent ground that cannot be felt
call to me.
It is time to leave
my small world of comfort.
The truth of my existence
is here, now
ready to take me
on her flight of surrender.

Surrender to who I am
and resist no more
Surrender to faith
to healing power
to love.
to the one life
I am here to live.

The apprenticeship is over.

Wholeness comes in parts
and I want them all —

the deep depths
of the underground
the silver lining
of the upper world
the joys and sorrows
sun rises and sets
heights and plateaus
loves and loss.

For this is life
and I want to go
into my final days
having known
them all.
