So small a soul, so large a house
with dark and gloomy rooms.
A child divine in search of light
her own light now subsumes.

But in her heart she weaves
the mystic window of her skin
through which her dance takes flight
translucent, pure and wondrous thin
on wings of purest light.

The searching child .. she reaches out 
to touch a state of Grace
 A bud in flower - a single glance ..
No soul remains untouched by love
as long as spirits dance.

Painting by Polina Yakovleva


  1. This is a remarkable poem that is haunting, mysterious and lyrical! And the painting A small child in "a large house with dark and gloomy rooms" imparts a feeling of vulnerability, loneliness and a sense of powerlessness. In spite of the darkness the child turns to the inner light within her to "touch a state of Grace." Something beautiful and miraculous is born. The shining butterfly in the image seems to convey this inspiring transformation. Truly beautiful. Thank you.

  2. That is so pretty Emma.. so dancing the words... ♥♥
