Peripeteia

Concentric circles
One within another
A smaller life resides
Beyond my vision

I am that child.
Dormant inside his
Bigger self
Days like today are
When I come alive

Exploding like
St. Helens
Hot ash pouring down
My cheeks, sloughing
Off any sign of Him

I wish it was like
This more often
But if it were, I would
Have nothing to look
Forward to
