this unspeakable unchanging Light


even I,
whose lifecourse
has been mapped
by a fierce longing for
something more
than words and beliefs


even I,
whose brilliant beacon
was oddly both
fore and aft as
this lifeboat surged
through seas of shimmering


even I
am shocked silly
to find that this Light –
this unspeakable unchanging
is here, is here
as ‘I’

and none other than ‘I’


– miriam louisa
