Ascent

Have we
In this maddening confusion
Somehow
Found the thing
We always wanted?
Is acceptance finally
Come
Available as a torch through
These shadows we
Believed
Impenetrable
Pushed aside by the leveling
Become
Extraordinary necessity for
All of us.
Can the lesser important
Reach
The rare air of those greater
Who
Little knew how dark was
Living in their shadows,
Fighting the chill
When forced
Into places of inactivity?
Now eyes
Widened open
Appreciate what passed
Unseen below the surface
Of the glacier.
Enlightened thoughts become
The flames upon
The pyre of past rejection
Burning
Wild and catching breath
Enough to spread prayers,
Devotions, incantations
To hearts of melting love.
