Caverns Deep

In caverns deep the purest water flowed
From mother earth’s veins
Sustenance of life
Where the weary kneel and go
to pray for futures so far out of sight

In caves we sheltered from oncoming storms
Embraced by rock as old as time itself
We shivered, praying on the shelf
for providence to find us in our plight

Emerging from the darkness into light
Umbilical chord broken
With open blinking eyes
We prayed for all such splendour in our midst
To heal our souls and let us yet alight

In caverns deep the purest water flowed
We tasted of such nectar
The world has never known
And innocent, rising to the light
We prayed to see our future out of sight

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
