Alabaster

I am I am
I am I am
I am a vessel of stone…Standing there quietly, waiting patiently.
Slowly the master chissels away, bits here and bits there
Sometimes it hurts, and I want him to stop.
He pauses for a while and then, delicately,
lovingly, he lifts his chissel.
After years in darkness, I can see light.
There is nothing above my head
but the starry night sky now.
My eyes drink in the sight
of blue and silver and gold.
Around me there is a liquid,
warm, thick, nourishing water,
softening colours and shapes.
I turn around, around my self,
around my Self, around…
Water fills the chalice,
all the way up
all the way down.
It comes from a source
deep in the ground
where the stars live also
welling up in the chalice
keeping me floating,
breathing,
dreaming.
I am a vessel
of stone
White stone, Limestone
Transformed
Under pressure
Into
Alabaster

Lifting

A burden on my shoulders
Where does it come from?
Why is it there?
When will it lift?
Dark
Heavy
Seeping into my soul
Leaden
Stifling
Weighing me down

Fog on the mountains
Where does it come from?
Why is it there?
When will it lift?
Grey
Heavy
Seeping into my soul
Whispy
Tender
Pushing me gently

Wind in the tree tops
Where does it come from?
Why is it there?
When will it turn?
Invisible
Strong
Blowing into my soul
Cold
Envigorating
Stirring my blood

Waves on the ocean
Where do they come from?
Why are they here?
What is their song?
Blue
Green
Seeping into my soul
Foamy
Thundering
Washing my heart

Change is on its way
Can you smell it?
Can you taste it?
The fog
The wind
The waves`
Whisper
Change
