Moving beyond this holy divide
is a space so unwordable, that even I,
who marks herself as free,
must come to know of those deep
unanswerables that live in the heart.
This shadowy ache of reach across mystery
only calls into awareness how limitless and full
And if to be fully expressed is to be free,
then I am a woman far from traversing beyond my own boundaries.
We stand on either side of a canyon
knowing the immense beauty of even the untravelled journey through time and space, between here and there,
between myself and where another being begins.
Just to look at you is a blessing –
a practice in recognizing my heart outside of my body.
