begin again:

light emerging
pale pinprick

from a deep well

begin again:

from darkness
from underground

a flicker
of constancy

begin again:

a spark filled seed
a cavity of light

small gesture
of great love

Riding that slanted ray of light is how we begin again. I haven't yet posted something I wrote 2 days ago, but yet again, you will be amazed at the synchronicity.

I'm getting the feeling that a lot of us are on the same wavelength this week about rebirth after conflict. Carry on! You're on the right track, and not alone.

down to the essence... agree with firebird, I, too, at the glimmer itself. Beautiful, MB, an inspiration, as always

So hard to remember to start over again with such peaceful, simple, easy moments. Hard to forget how many times we've had to start over, and leave that weight behind.

Thanks for that lit match.

For some reason, the colons:

Mermaid, riding that slanted ray of light is how I begin a lot of things.

Stray, thank you very much.

Firebird and Brenda, thanks! I am thinking this poem may be pared down to such pure metaphor that it functions as a mirror for the reader. Not a bad thing at all.

Dale, it is and it isn't. You know, I think.

Robin, thanks. That's my favorite part.

Jon Cox and RDL, thank you both!

Zhoen, it doesn't take much to start again, and we do it all the time.

Lori, I hope they got you: in a good way!

Pat, yup I did. Thanks!

Wondrous! I'm going to post this up somewhere! Want to read it 'again' every day.

Jean, your response is gratifying. I have the need to remind myself of this daily, too.
