The Alchemy Needed to Transform

A poem on reaching beyond fear.

How far have we really traversed
beyond our own boundaries?
Not the ones
protecting safety
rather where we hold
back from becoming
most free.

In relationship,
stand on rim of deep canyon
encounter untravelled
journey through time and space,
between here and there,
between self and other too.

Walk along those edges,
create space to carry
in each hand the love
along with fearlessness
ongoing forces of infinity.

In this expansive place
in which to weave magic:
the alchemy needed
to truly transform
not only self
but world and other
fully participating
and wildly untethered
reaching for another side.

Find the stretch
beyond boundary
beyond fear
something always new.
