A Celebration of Empty Space
a leaf letting go
from the tree
that roots you to this world.
you are that much closer
to the radiant heart of the Rose.
passing out of your life…
is the death of a shadow,
as the Light within you wakens.
You sit alone in a room, at last.
Your chairs, forever filled, are empty now.
The echo of voices dies into silence.
Your clutter of concerns drifts away.
Empty space opens inside you
like a sudden flutter of wings.
Something in you soars.
steps over your threshold,
looks into your eyes,
then closes the door
that led back to your world.
The room is alive with Song,
the walls, the floor, and the air
blazing in the sunlight
of his smile.
