Lalla Says

by Joanna D.

Forgetful one, get up!
It’s dawn, time to start searching.

Open your wings and lift.
Give like the blacksmith
even breath to the bellows.

Tend the fire that changes
the shape of metal.

Alchemical work begins at dawn,
as you walk out to meet the Friend.

~ Passage from, “Mystical Verses of Lalla” ~
