Gift of Darkness

November 4, 2020

What if darkness isn’t something to fear,

but a requirement?

 

What if relaxing into the long night

is the secret?

 

 

I have sat alone in darkness

the quiet covering the bareness of my shoulders.

 

Unspoken feelings formed there and floated up in me,

pushed forward, heaved out.

 

Far too tender for light,

shadows held them fast.

 

 

Blinded by obscurity of thought,

my eyes eventually adjusted.

 

I saw that not seeing my surroundings

engaged my inner sight.

 

The blackness enveloped me;

I was finally still.

 

 

Clouds shifted.

A star peaked free.

 

The window made space for the moon’s glow.

Mystery hung in the air.

 

My breath

expanded.
