Leap of Faith

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Into the sky, bold as a bird
flying before the sun
without wings-

No guarantee of success,
only a small courage in my heart
and a coin of hope,
a "maybe" in my mind, tentative
and a "I'm not sure" thought on my lips

Nevertheless, I flew up
and had no sensation of coming down,
only a pillow of air beneath my nonexistent limbs
of flight.

No time for descent, only for resurrection,
a small ascension, into
another place,
brighter,
and more illuminated,
nourished,
by the flooding of the light.
