The Waiting Sky

Night sky

A night sky

Full of stars.

An empty field,

Grass and wildflowers,

Ankle high.

Far off trees

Cap the upturned black bowl

Of the night sky.

 

Stand.

Feel the air brush your cheek.

See the stars,

The far lights,

Shining in the charcoal sky.

 

Feel.

That empty sky,

Opening,

Opening,

Endlessly opening,

Forever reaching.

 

Feel

The opening in your center,

The center of your center,

Reaching,

Endlessly reaching.

Stretching,

Aching,

Endlessly reaching.

 

Yearning.

 

Turn.

Let the stars

Wheel around you,

Dance around you.

 

Breathe.

Let the sky

Pulse with every breath.

 

Wait.

 

This is a moment of waiting.

 

An eternal moment.

 

The pause…

 

Before…

 

This is the before.

The edge of the cliff.

The breath before the plunge.

 

Ready?
