There is light in unknowns –
at least I project it there – caught between the current ashen landscape and the achings of a solitary childhood…
I like to think faith guides me
but she is muted like the gardens of my dreams, more ethereal than palpable and I need concrete have waited too long for that train
of certainty to carry me away…
course it never comes, there is no easy just a slow, steady plodding: a pace that age has settled on; so I turn to inner landscapes, imagination remembering colour…and yes, light.

I have ventured
into your atmosphere slipped my skin your skin and discovered a universe thoughts emotions beliefs blending into a physical dance of light and shadow nuances of colour delineating life
At our core
we are light leaning into mystery cellular interpretations of a symphony we cannot hear
mind altered we meld.

Expectations are my enemy –
raised without standards, boundaries full of holes, I worship at the altar of lies
Fortunately, soul follows it own star –
rages against darkness encroaching, shatters illusions, commands higher aspirations – love overcoming fear

shift and fold cotton strata Trees huddle confidence in community
one on another co-mingling hues
an eternal glow sun certainty.

Be as trees reaching
canopy of harmony – gratitude implied.

Calm belies the storm
dis-ease spawning a flurry fractured ideas peppered with glints of hope – with focus, I too sparkle.
(There have been many instances this week that have tested my grit.
I am learning to harness the good moments and hang on. Linking up to my weekly challenge: I’m learning... Image my own.)
Evening sky fraught
with alarm – brooding clouds menace
In morning light
all is redeemed – resplendent the day.

Hope’s a robot
Compassion is flame
ignited by love
kept burning by care
dampens the flame
darkens the path
follow her lead
keep compassion alive.
Midwinter light breaks
monotony of grey – tree
dances in glimmer.

My heart is a brook,
joyous as a child’s song,
memories like moss
warm my wintry verges –
luminescence from within.
(For RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku challenge:
brook/ moss; and Eugi’s weekly prompt: luminescent.)
