1.child going under, gasping for breath

drowning in waters too deep

in abysmal silence, you learn how to breathe

in darkness you dream while i sleep

what i didn’t see was this difference

your jump from the bridge was a dive

the hand letting go was a blessing

falling over, apart, is to fly

your flailing relinquished,

your sinking redeemed

your fear of the darkness resigned

enfolded in arms of stone stillness

underworld dance with divine

2. child, lifted up from the depths of the lake

like a pearl to Sophia’s crown

sparkling with waters of emergent life

in which you were nurtured not drowned

your appearance disquiets my flatness with beauty

and grief rushes out with your birthing

tearing open in me what wished to stay shut

frigidity cracked in unearthing

the chaos within, buried neath the still surface

erupts through this fault into blossom

transforming the anguish, which once i interred

in your watery womb, into wisdom

3. child, come to reclaim my heart as your throne

dance your way into my life

break into the cell of my wildlife reserves

open my wings as in flight

dry me in the warmth of your sunlight

by night, your lullabies sing

move your belongings back into my house

till i feel your power in my wings

child of my heart, don’t stop dancing

believe in your truth, you can fly

behold in your mirror Sophia

dancing Love’s dream into life.
