I am ready



slow crack in the deep dark
unfold
             stretch
                         reach
                                    peek
through the surface leaves
the sun pulls and pulls
long hands warm
midwifing new life
pause
          reach
                    stretch  
                                  breathe
sunlight moonlight cloudburst
small wings bear witness
the new birth
                      rebirth
                                  bold
petals unfurl and sing!
here
        here
                here
                         I am!

I am ready
                   stretch
                               reach
for stars sparkle from deep
within


another poem inspired by the contemplative spaces of NiteKirk, Edinburgh.
