it showed in her eyes I think
the light shifting around inside
but it would not be until later
when the answer would come

in a field of flowers I lie
abiding in love
and the winds of the tilting planet ruffle my hair
I will zip up my jacket high to my chin
and close my eyes as the scent of them
adds layered memory to my breath-centered focus
in a field of flowers lay I
I close my eyes
and the world is red
the sun is warm on my face
and I feel good
I think- this moment is a moment
that I'll always remember
and it was

in the middle of it all
I can see further now
the stairs wind up
but I can go
how do I know
so happy to someday find out

I am surrounded by the sea
it is all I see
so far away
ahead and above
clean foam shapes
their frozen power
hold my gaze
and aspirations
in their cupped secret places
it is there in front of me
clear and bold
awe and wonder
all my questions
all the untold known
out there
long drive to the distant clouds  
waiting for my journey to end
when I come near
and can say
I saw the sea

one morning I stood at the stove
flipping pancakes and watching them cook
that subtle brokenness humming its song
so soft and sad and in the background 
then with unexpected clarity
a knowing wove itself through me
and here it is I'm writing it down
everyone is of god
not for the few and far between who
 gamble belief and destiny
not for the convinced
not for the special few
no it's not like that at all
it's humanities' inheritance
it is every being existing here
their beautiful code embedded within
and the knowing swept through me
my heart swelled I felt so relieved
with all the energy and excitement
of a good idea
this knowing I would keep
I would honor like glue
repairing me to wholeness
I would release the mindset that was
twenty years in the making
that broke my bond to humanity and gave it to
a separate few
but brought me to this point
I placed the pancakes on a plate
they were cooked and I am mended
