David Whyte


Above the mountains

 the geese turn into

  the light again


painting their

 black silhouettes

  on an open sky.


Sometimes everything

 has to be

  enscribed across

   the heavens


so you can find

 the one line

  already written

   inside you.


Sometimes it takes

 a great sky

  to find that


first, bright

 and indescribable

  wedge of freedom

   in your own heart.


Sometimes with

 the bones of the black

  sticks left when the fire

   has gone out


someone has written

 something new

  in the ashes

   of your life.


You are not leaving,

 even as the light

  fades quickly now,

   you are arriving.
