From "In the Shadow of the Sun"

Rise and fall
Beck and call

Slick with fear
          +
Newly born
Into eternity

Struggle up through
The sludge
Toward the light

Toward the safe
Writhing close
Soft hiss of breath
Closer- joy
Toward the light

The warm safe
Blinding, binding
Wet with tears
           +
A scream of rapture
Echo into eternity  

Bryan P.T. Riley
