Let Growth Do Its Slow Work

A poem on diving through layers, finding the place you’ve stayed above.

When light searches
for lake’s deep end
finding water unclear
uncover instead
soft coil of protection
swirling in darkness,
only occasionally seeing
upwards glow.

in this meeting point
where light greets shadow
discover something deeper
beyond the place 
you’ve stayed above.
Dive through layers 
to ever-shifting
end (never fixed)
and be surprised
at what lies still
waiting to be found.

Recognized now,
this recovered part
joins a broken flow
letting growth
like light
do its slow work
of awakening…
