From the Empirical Archives: Within the Going by Peggy Alysworth

Within the Going
Peggy Alysworth
Originally published in the December 2012 issue of Empirical

I am where your life isn’t
and yet is,
driving across the world,
eternity at the wheel.
Long, long sky,
raw land,
someone always looking
for the Father
and the Son
of antique earth.
Children are crying
in the land. The baby
coming into his soul through tears
but not of sadness.
Adam was suckled and taught to know.
I wake from the fire into radiance.
