In the awkward moments
Of the silence following each conflict
The battlers’ cry
Is lifted

In the pleasing moments
Of the recognition of the depths of another
The eagle’s flight
Is lifted

In the burgeoning moments
Shared by new parents in joy
The hopeful infant
Is lifted

In the passing time
Of a life lived in search of fullness
The recognition of self
Is lifted
