Saturday Poem

Soul Hatching


soul-hatching-phoenix-eggYour Soul is hatching.

You are descending into your Sacred Self.

Broken open is the shell of your consciousness

that treats you as a stranger

Veils of Forgetfulness and Deception

descend upon your mind.

Voices call your by a name

you have often heard,

yet you know in your heart

it is not you.

You seek the Majestic Swan

though you believe yourself

to be the Ugly Duckling.

You stay in the mystery

of your disowned, unknown Self.

You enter the terrifying silence.

You dive into the petrifying stillness.

And even when you see its reflection

in the pure waters,

even then you hear your voice

that is not yours crying

“Go back!

This is not real!”

But you stay. You dive.

You crack that shell

and feel the old wound hurting,

feel the loss and find the love

and the shell breaks open.

The bird or your Soul

breaks free.

The Swan flies into the light.

Delight in its emergence.
