illuminate

sometimes we may catch a glimpse 

of that which is so near –

illuminated by fear –

but still, if only brief

we are called to honor our grief
our hidden natures, inside shadows

our parts which forget to breathe . . . 

among us, these, our lessons
captivate, taunt, contemplate –

until we forget but then we’re reminded

struck by brilliance, so close –

sometimes even bolts ⚡️ coming down 

to shatter us,  Awake *
