Up in the Autumn Attic of my mind
Where I climb up and leaves fall down
I had a dream.
It planted a fruit that grew a seed
That brought light to my darkest day
A golden light
Spilling out of itself
Isn’t it amazing
How one action of many strands
Can liberate a dream
Like a Dove released from a cage
At last, for the peace it has always sought.
The olive branch, the white flag,
With love and with courage
From mind to heart, from heart to mind.
Ocean reflects sky as sky reflects ocean
And then something that was so sore
Is allowed to be beautiful again
Complete, just as it was.
As tears fill my eyes
I am filled with golden gratitude
For such a beautiful love.
I wake up to find myself
