The Light that Guides

In the deepest darkness, light is born
as from the womb, a mortal form
emerges seeking only air
within each moment rare

suddenly the lungs expand
for the spirit understands
the basic need of life - to share
within, without, now unimpaired

by waters of the womb enclosing
the seed, with pain of birth disclosing
the secrets of a life evolving
as the sun and moon and stars revolving

become the light that surely guides
each spirit to the other side
