Poet’s Nook: "Because I Have Been Everything" by Lorna Goodison

Because I have been everything
wild spirit
Now initiate of the order of grace
made keeper of the key of possibility.
All I cannot bear to see, or worship
in others, is in me.
My heart life is open, transparency
my soul’s life in otherworlds, secrecy
where midnights meet
and the fount of morning
are all in me
all tides swell and have come
to flood
To reborn me bright O crystal sea
a universe is light in me.
