Imagine



Beyond what I ask
or imagine,
is Possibility.
I imagine my soul,
a deep-rooted,
branch-stretching tree,
balanced between the rich earth
and the infinite sky,
reaching to eternity;
beyond Now,
beyond I...
I imagine the moon in my belly
and the moon bearing me,
reflecting sunshine
in silvered silence
and riding the starry sky
til dawn...
I imagine my spirit,
singing with stars
in spiraling galaxies, 
turning towards infinity,
towards eternity,
towards home...
I ask that my song be beautiful
and true,
star-bright,
ancient, 
ever-new,
echoing in everything
and belling to Beyond...
Beyond what I ask,
beyond what I imagine...
and then, 
in perpetuity,
Possibility.
