It Is Time

IMG_5236

It is time you

do who you are.

It is time to

be one with

yourself and now. It is a

soft circle you draw

around your own

divisions. It is a love

for all you thought

left out. It is the

next step while not

knowing, it is the first

breath while still dying.

For you are gold of sun

cast once alone into

the human strain, and

only for a time.

You are not one to be repaired for

who would know the

beauty if not for what is

broken open to grace?

Even your sin trails off

as the spitfire incarnation

of some blazing glory.

You are your own

medium assigned to

gifts and wonders from

within to without

through which the light of a

vast mystery is refracted.

You bend it so sublime.

It is time.
