“Courage Resurrects” by Jeff Flesch

I’ve come from afar

another galaxy of stars

away

take shape

in the sights, and sounds

of the night

a mirror image

the fabrics

and scents of you

a remembrance

of all that was once

good

and new

take my heart

into another dimension

of space

a place

where light enters into the cavity

of death

and resurrects

the courage

needed

to pass the final test

    Thank you for your submission, Jeff! I love the imagery, in particular

    a place

    where light enters into the cavity

    of death

    and resurrects

    This is a most beautiful way to describe death and resurrection and getting past this earthly place. What a lovely write. Also you pieces always end with something so up lifting. Nicely done my friend. Big hugs and love Jeff
