NaPoWriMo 2019 challenge- 30 poems in 30 days. Poem #23

One Fell Swoop

In one fell swoop, my heart

was lifted off the roadway

where I had

been traveling without

a true destination,

awaiting a sign

from unseen guides;

advisers all my life-

What did I know of

destinies and

agreements made

before this earthly incarnation-

Promises to ferry in

two beings

needing passage

from the ethers-

a contract on my soul to

shelter and nurture

their hunger for knowledge.

Promises fulfilled-

ear to the sky

alert to the arrival

of new instructions

and where

I am needed next.
