Divine Destiny

Jilly’s 28 Days Of Unreason Poetry – Day 18

Write a poem inspired by this quote:

“We’ll know as children again all that we are destined to know, that the water is cold and deep, and the sun penetrates only so far.”

Jim Harrison from Death Again

Divine Destiny

The water is cold and deep
but the Sun penetrates
deeper than the ocean’s floor
and higher than the moon’s beyond

Lighting the way to follow
where Wisdom’s rays
shine down upon
the earth’s dark recesses

Calling to the comatose souls
to awaken with a child’s heart
open, abandoned, untainted
by pain and betrayal

Pure instinct and ability
to love unconditionally
this, their divine destiny.
