Cease to Dream - Cease to Be

To a girl love is a joyful sentiment
of the heart, perhaps a blinding passion,
an instinct of bodies that meet in bliss.

A warrior woman she battles that
which is destructive to life, fights hard
to reach her own internal dawn.

As matriarch she reaps the rewards
of sustained effort in the creations of life.
Sometimes she touches wisdom,

then watches as it slithers away
in the busyness of her life. She grew older,
was able to hold this understanding longer.

As her grandchildren grow into teenagers,
she learns to see past hate and suffering, values
compassion and unconditional love.

In all things, in others, she learns to see
the truth of herself. As light on crystalline
waters - her image is returned.

Love becomes a transparency , a lucid
clairvoyance, as she surrenders her life
to growth, she gains the clarity of crystal.
