One and One and One and One




A single light
well placed
illuminated
drives away fear and darkness

As a single hand
skilled and caring
brings comfort and cure
to the sick and weary

The babe draws life
one breast at a time

The longest journey draws to its end
with a solitary step 

In symmetry
and balance
the one and the one
meet match and mating
a perfect amalgamation
once every year

Taking Me




Taking my brilliance
overcome by laziness and fear

My goals
my thoughts and inspirations

Taking my ambitions
tightly wound around my closely held obsessions

Taking my successes
and disasters
taking the rise to challenge
and the failure to act

Bearing
abiding
accepting

Taking me
everywhere I go

First Light




The curtain is pulled back
much too quickly
as the sound of a new mother’s voice
is no longer muffled

The jarring surprises
of air into lungs
skin upon skin
the colors of the world
in all its magnificent splendor

Open the door to life
make room in your heart for trust
and amazement

Throw open your arms
as you welcome this day of first light
