Folded within myself I am back in the womb of life
where I wait, once more for the universe within me
my heart, a bud too ripe touching walls
in this sealed space and time that I share with myself
my mind, a riddle, that flickers whenever
thoughts chase the rhythm pulsating within
and I am an acorn asleep in a secular tree,
secured on its branch under the safety of green leaves.
until the breeze awakes me and I can’t wait to touch ground
the revelation of sacred life that was started within myself.
