in the right light

in the right light
eyes can shift
to a perfect depth for scrying

I want to see
where spirit pools,
not translate what is written
inside the palm of your hand

past guessing
I want to divine certainty
from uncertain beginnings

smoothing questions
into & past passion
through tenderness

to where we are held
just us, embodied
& reflected

impossibly there


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Yes! Susan you seem to be swimming in a particularly creative river, metaphorically speaking. I appreciate the time and effort you’re taking to document what I’m sure is just a small part of your insight and awareness. Fine, fine work.
