THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE LIGHT
Feel your own being walking among the stars
The spaces beyond to the heavens yet unknown.
They exist for your pleasure, wonder, amusement,
if you cannot hear the song of those places call
then you are not silent enough to know
that all of everything is within us all.
Send your spirit soaring out to the places it belongs,
the space where the roaring silence
carries you away from the humanity of violence,
to those undiscovered places that are calling you with longing,
telling you that there is a place you’ve not seen yet
but have a space waiting for your belonging.
And when you return to this body of flesh and bone now still here
know it is only temporarily your home, yet not the best part of it.
Open your heart and think of nothing here to be too dear
but see all of the weightless beauty held deeply within your spirit.
