Treasure Island

Alla Renee Bozarth

(Portland, Oregon)

Soulfire


Between your eyes
there is a window
inward.

In the window
there is a candle
burning.

In the burning
there is communion
infinite.

In this
infinite
inward
burning —

no death
no separation

Reach into
this intimate
flame
And remember
the Light
from which you
came.
