I had a dream —
That darkness was all there is to see
That cold is all there was to feel
That there was nothing beyond this cocoon of despair
That, this seeming emptiness
Rendered the very fabrics of existence meaningless
And threw actions into overwhelming futility
It was absurd,
I had a dream.
And I woke up
Then there was light — a timeless luminance
And these sunrays filled me with warmth from within
And I — I am a butterfly!
Fluttering, wings engaged against the still air
Birthed into this enigma of Being,
Embracing the Open that transcends time.
I have endured the deepest winter,
And as the light pierced through this absurdity
I at last discovered —
That there was in me,
An invincible summer.
