Spiritual Spelunking

I woke up at 2:00 a.m. with the Spirit knocking on the door of my unconscious.   I am unaware of having been dreaming, but a clear and precise message boomed out: “I can see water swimming in a cave.”

Here is how I have worked with it:

Spiritual Spelunking

Our bodies make their first journey out
Of the cave with reluctance to leave
The safe solitude of buoyant waters

Life moves on and away
From the startling solitude of caves
Yet our souls yearn to return
Not to be carried aloft by gentle waters
But to dive deep
Commingling
With the first drop.
