Rosemary Wells
On Captivity (January 2018)
Inward Light

for E.D.

Like the meat 
Is to the nut 
Like the pearl
Is to the shell
Like the clapper
To the bell
So the voice
Within does dwell.

Like a needle
In a groove
So the earth
Around the sun –
Part your mortal lips to speak
And your being
Has begun.

Rosemary Wells is a member of Monterey Peninsula Meeting in Pacific Grove, CA (PYM).
