the sign of jonah

apparently
three days and nights
in the darkness
are required
before we are able
to come fully
into the light

we can’t avoid
the belly of the beast
or the darkness of the tomb
in this journey
of transformation

we must be swallowed
and taken to the depths
of our own inner darkness
before there can be
any real possibility
of being spit out
on some new shore

death is required
before resurrection
can take place
that is what
the sign of jonah
is all about

(Matthew 12:38-40)
