Hope seeps
through rifts of the heart
And expands
Until cracks become gaps
Gaps become openings
Openings become doorways
An escape beyond

Sunlight warms
Feathery winds lift
Sapphire skies expand
I wish to be carried away
On the gale of dreams
Yet, I hold fast to the door
White knuckles gripping

Hope is followed
By the fear of feeling it

In the harsh terrain of infinite discovery
Gravity firmly planting my feet

I am enlightened
A wisp in this wind that lifts
No longer an astronaut sadly counting on man made vehicles to get high
I am the destination
Arrived and achieved in…
