Dear Friends, Readers, Co-hearts, Star-lovers,
This year I was blessed to be reunited with another poet of the heart & viscera. She is Kai Coggin. From the beginning, when I read her words, it was confirmed for me that Spirit had put me on the path of meeting and connecting with soul family; and she is One. She’s one of those co-hearts that transcends space and time. Our connection was quick in understanding; and roots run deep. She’s given me permission to share with you now one of my first favorite poems from her new book. It’s called, ‘End in Light’ p.99 Thank you, Kai, for sharing the gift of your voice and with all your heart!
⌘ End in Light
Every footstep on the ancient wise path is worth the fight.
There is no other true purpose in life than to end in light.
Deviation is normal – not every journey starts out right,
but there is an internal compass steering to end in light.
Truth blindness and deaf ears defeat your heart’s flying,
everything is open – the source begins and ends in light.
Your first heartbeat is a star being born in the blackness.
Each beat and breath brings you closer to ending in light.
I have lived through the chaos of becoming illumined,
shedding false skins and shells, screaming to end in light.
This can be a dancing of spirit if your heart can break through,
be the ever virgin song that aches to fulfill the ending in light.
Life is a burning ground, a filling of a chalice that you hold inside.
My dear, fledgling soul – death is not the only way to end in light.
Let go of what you have been forced to believe is your self,
become everything that you know you are, that bends in light
and is not broken, but transforms into prisms and eleven rainbows,
and knows “I AM” becomes everything you are that ends in light.
Kai sent me this beautiful peace crane pictured above. She’s an amazing person, author, and educator. She has touched my heart. The edges of the book’s pages are already dog-eared with love.
I’m not alone in celebrating her…
“I first met Kai Coggin as a blazing fire of energy, a supernova educator in the Houston high schools. Now she is on her light path, teaching through her own poetry. Her words are spells, chants, prayers, invocations. Thank you, Kai, for work of the spirit, for illuminations like desert thunder and a night sky of benedictions.
