I hope you enjoy this poem, as we near the solstice, and know that the light will return.
Life in the night – trees unseen, the
woods a hidden myth, staggering
from step to unsure step, your path
is faith, your direction trust.
Safety: a myth, security: fib,
walking in darkness, way marks hid,
headway is made past obstacles
obscured, dark’s blackness: fear complete.
So rises the dawn, return of
the light, letting you see the way
through the trees, self-reliant now,
you can see to make safe choices.
In darkness, unsighted, rely
on your faith, high powers – Angels –
will keep you safe as you make
your way forward, blinded in night.
In light dark’s myths dissolve from
the world, illumined in day all
is safe, sure and sound, you control
destiny, your life is safe in love.
