i saw her again tonight / by Ellen Sorensen

i saw her again tonight 

in the moments between sleepiness and slumber

striding through the dreamless mists of my mind

forests of satin swishing around her with no sound


"you are capable" she declared, "of all this and more."

and in that instant, she split open in two

bursting with tiny bubbles of blinding light

splaying out prismatic strobes that encompassed my entire vision


everything in my heart soared to meet this energy

like a time capsule being opened after many years

there, under the arches of that sacred space

unbound dreams and desires gave way to life
