Pathway

I left the house and strolled

into the abyss of darkness

that seemed impenetrable.

 

Nothing blocked me or made me

want to turn back but clearly

what was ahead was obscured.

 

To find my way through the black

was going to take time and effort

and a different set of eyes.

 

I picked up the scent of holy

and focused on following its fragrance

as I went my way into the night.

 

I walked and walked alone together.
