Resurrection

resurrection © 2015 heather rhodes studio petronella all rights reserved
 

when the darkness 
has had enough of you

when you have been anointed
by the lakes and forests
of the in-between

when you feel 
the excruciating tenderness
of life singing you up 
from the depths

into 
the sunlight
warmth
movement
and touch...

how clear it becomes;
that the beloved
has infinite arms
in which 
to hold you;

nestled in darkness,
dancing in the light

rejoice

birth
this 
moment;

opening,
unfolding
like a blossom
to love
