Loneliness in a crowded room,
Unseen thoughts built a higher wall,
And my hand closed the door.
Aware of her fingers brushed against cheek
A comfort awakened in isolation
Easing me from solitude
Into the silken web of life.
Then I see enlightenment;
My soul, exiled in illusion,
Reaching out for the living energy,
The vibrant tendrils that extend from Mother Earth
Flowing with the life that feeds everything.
