Helping the dawn appear

Helping the Dawn Appear

Strange the way my shadow began to fall. I
was standing in a field helping the dawn

appear, and when its body, the sun, was fully
lifted into the sky

I was amazed to see my shadow in front of 
me as I faced that luminous candle we all know.

I turned around in amazement, wondering
what could possibly be there;

it was the soul, our soul helping God to find
new horizons.

Strange to some, but not to love evolved, no
longer any shadow... I now cast.
