Reach and Stretch

Stretch and reach
and touch the stars
that shine so brightly
through the heavens

Push yourself beyond the pain
inherent in each new beginning
and find the worth of birth
within each effort

as love begins to grow
in moisture's flow
born and born again
within each breath

of wind, of air
as invisibly it spins
a reality of tapestries
into an all becoming form

and magically, a fire stirs
deep within the heart
of all creation
where embers lie in wait
and even ice cannot abide
its glowing warmth

for movement beckons
all of life to rise and dance
within a rhythm
that enhances everything

in timeless intervals
as we reach and stretch
to touch the darkness dwelling
at the core of every light

for without darkness
light cannot abide
itself alone . . .
