In this exact moment I somehow feel empty yet whole at the same time.

I can’t help but respect this side of myself that’s tiredly, trying to find its way back to life.

There were two opposing skies divided on either side of me this morning.

Uniquely and eerily parallel

both slightly mocking the movement of an hour glass.

They represented my brittle, tattered journeys.

The great divide.

To my right, a full moon carefully kissed the quiet hills blemished of snow

with a soft, & just—-peacefulness.

I loved the way that ice reflected this bitter but gleaming chill of solitude dwelling within.

To the left lay the most beautiful sunrise I’ve witnessed.

It represented itself as nothing I’d ever seen or felt before.

The burning of that soft, dimly lit rainbow

had somehow awakened and replenished my broken, worn soul.

I felt every color boldly displaying itself

but slowly melting and molding together so effortlessly.

I don’t know if the sky was dancing

If the heavens of the universe were showing what’s beyond its clouds

or if someone painted it there for me to see.

All I know is that it chose to stream flawlessly across that Kentucky sky the way it did

while breathing it’s life into my sleepless eyes.

It was there to let me know

that I’m not only awake and dreaming

but alive and free.

As bare tree tops glistened against dawn

as that fierce moon retired long after dusk

I realized that I do belong.

I do have a place and I am aligning with purpose.

I and infinity have become one.
