In My House


I stare into the light...
A candle...
A doorway.
I peer out of windows
Through colors...
And tree leaves.

I sit in the darkness
Discerning the shadows...
Expanding my mind's eye...
Searching my soul.

I walk through all the rooms of my house
Feeling my presence
Hearing my footsteps
Keeping the peace
Checking the mirrors
Doing some housework...
Til the time that I'm ready
To gather my heartstrings
And come from the dark house
To cross over into the light.
