I sat here before
Back to the wall
The walls spoke of sorrow and fear
Now they warm my heart
With sparking luminescence
Firing bulbs of elegance that
Soothe the soul entranced

Life has come back
In glorious delight
Every meaning powerful
Positively overflowing
Throwing sixes at every turn
Resplendent in striding strut
Cock-a-snook to cartwheel turns

Calm becalms with silvery flakes
Light to the touch
Drifting through a damaged body
Bringing sleep so joyous
Rapture walking
Breathing deeply fresh hope
Grinning ear to ear
Only the clouds to wake me now.

All meaning has changed
And with it world rearranged
Arrows dart skyward awaking
To brightness around
Push on and breathe again
Embrace me old friend.
