Grasping for Life
death grip
on hand transparent
meeting dark,
beyond dark

light
vague
hope at the end
of tunnel, long

frozen
in place
fear
rooting feet
in the no-place

gentle light
growing
candle flicker
gentle hands
guiding
gentle words
reminding
gentle love
encouraging

blessed
blessed beyond measure
