a cloak unfolds








a shift in the clouds and a cloak unfolds
rich velvet black the established remoulds
pinpricks of light the darkness through peers
forming a beam that enraptures and steers
towards timeless travel in worlds yet unseen
frees the mundane and reveals the pristine
self that’s within, that you’ve hidden away
caught up in ties of old guilt and dismay
now bask in the presence of grace and accept
freedom from sins that away have been swept

  3. Forgiving oneself and moving on to "worlds yet unseen" is definitely the height of freedom. Lovely words, even better because they are written with love and received with grace.
