Begin To Glow

A light began to glow within
a gathering of darkness.
Ember turned to spark that grew
into a living flame.
He thought that he had nothing
left to gain, but he was wrong.
Eternity was calling out his name.

Winds whistling in a beatific eerieness tonight.
The light of stars and moon has been obscured.
Withdrawn into another realm, he saw it all too clear.
The power held within a loving touch was more
enchanting than the fame that they held dear.

The years and tears had all been spent
within a savage jungle some called culture.
Social strife had left his life undone.
And all the many tales he'd spun
were still unraveling. Withdrawn,
he'd thought to live the rest alone.

Until he heard one precious tone
that rose in decibels. And then -
a light began to glow within
a gathering of darkness.
Ember turned to spark that grew
into a living flame. He heard
the future calling out to him.

To change is strange. And yet
to stay the same can bring the death
of possibility. Grace is born of creativity.
Straining rushing into understanding.
He found another path to lead him home...
