i am asking

I am asking,
Help me give up all the beliefs
that don’t belong.
I am called back to the Light,
because the Light is where I came from.

As a spool unwinds into another,
what if -
instead of a human
I am a leaf
a fragment of a willow tree
a fabulous child of God
sipping life through colored hands
glowing gold with the sun
bending to receive
created from fire
born from stars
remembering the seed
sprung from caves
a crown of wisdom
that began before birth.
