As Light Broke

My eyes lift

to the center arch

as light breaks

through the caged


Illuminating the cool, 

smooth tiles above…. 

Moments before 

I stepped into

this historic cathedral,

I learned that a friend

had passed, walked

into heaven just hours

ago, and now I bow

my head, imagine

her like that light,

her soul waking,

breaking from her

wearied body,

a soft light rising 

into the open arms 

of Love.
