pain and promise

Jeff Flesch  – DEVELOP. INSPIRE. TRANSFORM. Yesterday at 10:00 am

I stir the pain and promise
of another day

living amongst the calmest tides, and
between thin wispy clouds

I await

the love within this shroud
knowing the pain delivered is filled with gold
hues

and ambiguity among truths
birthed

within the mountains cold

and dark, living inside me a mark
filled with the void of time

sung from my fingertips, to the
mountain tops

I slip

into a reverie and cannot exist
a moment longer

than is needed

I withdraw
and await the heeded, love

I hope

to carry me into the gates of my beloved
where love’s already been seeded
