Far from Truth

Far from truth, this lie

sneaks along in the night:

sun blind-sided,

moon on the wane,

stars amiss,

darkness reigns.

Yet this cannot hold; its promised

security, its pretense of

surety collapse, this

feigned “everything covered”

crashes in on itself.  And

from the chaos curiosity is

recovered, uncovered, discovered.

Darkness lightens as this burden

of certainty stretches to breaking – my

bonds, my fetters, my chains

snap and You burst upon me – You

Firefly, Flaming Sky, Lightning’s Cry and

I, I glow yet

again.
