“I will take the sun in my mouth and leap into the ripe air Alive
with closed eyes to dash against darkness” ? E.E. Cummings

Self Sacrifice

Darkness
Fallow, fecund
Unabashedly
Offering own womb
To embryo
Light
~
Prodding it
To burgeon
Gain form
Strengthen
In leaps
Bounds
~
and light
after languorously
Stretching limbs,
Uncurling palms
Upon maturity
Devours it
~
“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.” ? Pablo Neruda
