The Flowering

In the wee hours of night

Comes belief that fear, despair, darkness,

Even death hold dominion over light.

Let me breath in Mother from my root.

Please fill me now.

Let me surrender to the tender,

Exquisite opening of my heart.

Let me send pain and delusion to my third eye,

Until my I meets God's eye,

And let me flower,

Showering sweet, golden rain

Upon each cell and aspect of my being;

Transforming to the knowing that

I Am.
