By Marc R. Boulais*
All of Nature’s quiet, expectant groaning
Trapped by seed self under Earth’s death door
Yearning for existence to reach for Heaven’s heights
And be caressed by sun’s and wind’s gentle touch once more.
Something inside must die to crack its small prison
Ego’s craftiness controls to thwart Life’s purposeful decision
Dying to self brought seeds of blood to the Master’s brow
Let go and trust God in darkness impossible to understand
Accept mysterious Love appearing as loss dealt from such a heavy hand.
The Father’s Love is ever faithful to see His children
Reach for heights of Love’s upward, transformed fruition.
Your crucifixion is the plan to pay the cost of Life’s tuition
To be raised anew in a Christ-centered selfless creation.
The worm sees not the flight, but eats the dirt to his delight.
God’s plan is much better; A Resurrection born in flight
To reach ever upward and soar the skies to mystical height
Of Love’s infinite capacity to give of True Self
In Resurrected glory to become a beam of Light.

* Marc R. Boulais is a serious student of Life who is committed to learning, living and practicing universal life truths. Having been raised Roman Catholic, it is clear that his short story “Deep Waters” includes imagery and references that reflect his strong Christian background. But Marc is also a student of other disciplines. He studies A Course in Miracles, the works of Joseph Campbell, the teachings of native American Indian Fools Crow, as well as the poetic writings of Rumi and Lao-Tzu, to name a few. According to Marc, all spokes of the wheel lead to the center and that center is God.
