The Dance
You gaze upon these trees of light with
fear and fascination.
You are drawn to their beauty, yet you dare
not come any closer than the radius of comfort
you have measured for yourself.
Millions of slumbering orbs rest on your limbs,
waiting to illuminate.
Someday we will uncover your secrets 
and ignite your dormant spirit.
Your luminous glow will burn away the layers of mist
that surround and isolate you.
Then you will join this forest of light and dance
in glittering ecstasy.
This is my wish, my hope, my perpetual prayer.

 Grace Bird

    There’s a ferocity to the longing in this that takes it from wistfulness to determination, evoking possibility in the most amazing way.
