I know what light feels like

I have been there before

Comfortable, with ease, still, aware


I know what dark feels like

I have been there too.

Confusing mysterious, also comfortable


When the soul is disrupted

Chained to the darkness of the night

Buried in fog shrouding the landscape


Without darkness, a slumbering soul lingers

Heavy, waiting, snoozing, pretending

Darkness-vital to liberate the light

It summons the courage to listen, to mobilize, to try


Slowly, the soul rouses

Like rays of sunshine through a glass pane

truth, surrender and peace are the sunbeams

illuminated by angels of insight


darkness fades

I am light again
