...and be it affirmed... Flower of Faith


this night be it dark
quivering roots of despair
take not hold
spirit spirit awaken
bequeathed I to the light
this radiant bloom
flower of faith be known.

    the dark swirls of passionate hope thrill me. I am captured in the movement toward light while blinded in the darkness of faith's wonder - your words and image fold into dark despair and still there is the light of hope. Such is life./
    Love to you

    Much love,
