Hidden Spring

for the people of Egypt and Tahrir Square

Strength comes with the morning

from a troubled dream

to the gray palette of winter sky

inviting a hidden self

to awaken beyond the body,

emerge from the dark earth of soul

with the nourishment of that depth

and rise like Lazarus, born again

to the beauty of this life

with destiny bubbling

from ancient ground

toward all those reaching

for freedom.

    Yes. Anger, rage, can be just the energy needed for a breakthrough to one’s or ones’ “hidden destiny.” Thank you, Don. Makes my compassionate enfoldment all the more focussed.
