Leap Now

Written by: Karen Dominick

Leap now onto a gossamer wish 
in the dawning day of a sacred kiss
Hold it tightly to your chest
as you grasp a fleeting cloud
before it floats away
with your very best

Hush the ego
as it screams into the night
so falsely proud
All oblique chatter 
to silence the truth of you

Stand naked as a fugitive 
Your twisted brow bleeding hues
of tears washed by gracious rain 
Splashing red, pinks and vivid blues 
upon this precious work of art
of beauty and of light

Your back is up against your dreams
Leap now to your intended bliss
For what is pain
but a brief hesitation in the beat of an open heart
