First light

Image

 

Before the first light of morning,
when only street lights notice,
a world in waiting

wakes,
as darkness is bent
towards the light,
shadows go indoors
for fear of being seen.

As one set of blinds open
another closes
like sun shades,
this fierce yet healing light

splinters,
reach deep into the souls shadows,
terrifying and comforting
the one who is afraid.

And now between worlds
of light and darkness,
a gracious invitation

comes,
to be the one you were
from the beginning,
when seen in the first light.
Naked
and unashamed.
