|"Serenity, Spirit Visions" ©Mary Montague Sikes|
The rock holds me, serene.
I stare around me and see nothing.
Emptiness chills and expands.
Birds stir and sing in the trees.
Upward far above, I see a vision in the sky.
Fearless, I stand and watch
An angel tall holding a star.
I listen to the sounds of the universe.
Starlight is as quiet as sunshine.
Darkness envelops the woods.
I walk along a dusty path
Brave and strong on a new journey.
The rock moves to the sound of thunder.
The angel glows and fills the sky with light.
From the earth, trees lift their branches
And share their secrets with the universe.
