It has been raining for days.
Low hanging clouds
drive me down to my roots
to the dark place where it all begins again,
the darkness where diamonds are formed
by intense pressure and solitude.
Here the longing begins,
the longing to emerge,
to see the light of day
and turn it into rainbows.
We never know our own beauty
until it pierces the illusion
like some blade of grass slicing through cement.
All it takes is an unguarded moment
a breath without effort...
And we arise.
