' Awakening

Alone in the velvet darkness,
a soul dwells
in ignorance

until

Awareness descends
on the wings
of enlightenment -

A soul
no longer

Alone.

It would be on a tangent due to different faiths we follow but I can actually relate to this “velvet darkness” and when the granite of silence was sliced and Gabriel said “Read” unto Muhammad (PBUH) Awareness descends on the wings of enlightenment - A soul no longer Alone. Thanks so much Linda… this is truly universal verse which always infinite views of love
A simply wonderful poem, with such depth and meaning - awakening a little in each of us!
