RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Solemnly moving into the darkness ahead, not knowing what
will be forthcoming.
Going forward anyway, pushing aside all fears and doubts,
being enticed into it's depths.
Truly exploring with all senses, looking and peering into
it's blackened presence, sensing feelings and emotions,
hiding within my heart.
Now seeing with the brilliance of an illuminating shyness,
the love that penetrates my being.
Coming straight from another, standing always in front of
me and now just noticing, as I retreat from the darkness
and into startling awakening thoughts.
Pulsing interiorly, walking towards beauty of an uncondi-
tional love being shared by one another, now alight and
out in the open.
