Dark Water

Where you truly belong
You cannot be kicked out.
What is truly yours
You’ll never be tested by having it leave.
That subtle stillness
That endless quiet underneath
That infinitely deep and dark well beneath you.

You are a gift to this universe

Perfect, whole, and complete.

The first time in infinity

That these molecules should meet

Made of everyday stuff

(This ground beneath your feet)

Yet a unique channel

With whom no one competes.

How beautiful you are
How special
How lovely your rocky trail
How lovely your hard times
How lovely your grey hair
How lovely your trials.

Never alone,
never surprised.

Be still,
and listen
the dark water.


Tell Ali all about it!
