Whoever Went In

by Dorothy Walters


Original Language English

Whoever went in
naked to the core.

Whoever cast aside
all the armor,
all the fastenings.

Who could breathe air thin as flame.

Drink water pressed from blossoms,
rose petals
or violets.

Whoever stayed in that
darkness so dark
it became a circle of seeing.

Who could hear
the silent flute note
of the stilled wind,
hold rock turning to light.

-- from Marrow of Flame : Poems of the Spiritual Journey, by Dorothy Walters
