The Space

Beyond The Image
I emerged from the cold, dark depths,
feeling my way up, through frozen clay,
to meet the day.
Bud unfolding, profusion of colour,
reaching for the sun,
My laughter and dance to unchained melody,
in cadence with romance
and my madness.
Butterfly changeling, wings unfurling,
fragile with love
for my gentle Being.
