To Glow

Like light in the sun

spilling out of the sun,

the spirit within

beams its way

through all our cracks

till our most treasured

walls come down.

of those walls is the

blessing we crave

and resist.

of the soul like the light

of the sun can help the

world grow—this is

the call of calls.
