Written for the “Envision” prompt at Writer’s Island, my Saturday hangout. Peace, Amy


Unthinkably vast
Earthly limitations banished
Swirling channels of gold
Soft, dry, enveloping
The comforting experience of a universe
you never recognized, yet never left

The essence of your spirit
breaks through an eggshell membrane
Penetrating a place that is not a place
but a pool, ocean, sea, sky
constellation of love and nothing more

Picture love’s embrace
in a place called Eternity
