Awaken the Lovers

heartlight

Awaken the lovers,

the ones we left naked

and alone, curled

like vast wildernesses

around their hearts,

and ask what they discovered

traversing the silent knowledge

of their dreaming.

The world calls for them to sing,

and soothe these confused voices

speaking out in fear and hate.

The world calls for them to laugh,

like children, at the boundaries

we imposed upon our minds.

Awaken them,

the ones who abandoned the

procession through the valleys

to dance with the mountains,

and ask what they discovered

wandering the timeless shores

of the bewildered.

We call for them to kindle

our shared vulnerability, so

we may cross the territory of despair

with playful courage and

a deepening clarity.

We call for them to reveal

the strength transcending barriers

and the fearless understanding

dormant beneath all symbols of

power and oppression.

Awaken them,

the lovers kept secret

behind our masks

of doubt and cynicism,

and ask what they discovered

traversing the silent knowledge

of their dreaming.
