life bursting forth

here I am
waiting for words
to give shape
to this gratitude
welling up
for reasons
beyond reason

a heart unable to
catch God
but caught
like love filling
this throat with song
as the river fills with
swarming salmon
swimming upstream
chasing death
drowning in joy
more precious
than wakened eyes that
would hold dreams
seen while still sleeping
and stronger than
steel or stone
forged and hewn to
soar or moor—

this pioneer soul
now bolder
shall flourish
as undiscovered forests,
thick and rich,


I shall not be moved
I shall be moved

life bursting forth
a poem by Troy Cady
