In the Darkness

It is not clear – the way to go

It is not blocked, the path is clear.

It is unclear because darkness…

obscures the given direction

Despite this, I must venture forth,

step aheart into the darkness,

with courage embrace the unknown,

engaging what I do not know.

“Be not afraid” is a mantra –

helpful to proceed with safeness.

Darkness surrounds and envelops,

but does not impede or deter.

Yes, darkness is a space holder.

In darkness, I see possible.

With darkness, I find openness.

Darkness helps me explore the way.

I adjust my eyes for darkness…

and I listen attentively.

I hopefully wander about

available to all that is.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
