Beyond the Shadows

Bask in the sunshine,
Gently notice your shadow.
Bright full moonlight
Creates another casting image.
A silhouette like silence
Moves,
Stands still,
Dances,
A forever quiet partner,
Bearing witness to the
Unspoken
Unspeakable
Unbroken
Hidden eclipse.
What blocks your view of vast possibilities,
Enduring love?
What causes you to hide from your
Beautiful self?
Night
Mares gallop
Into your sweat-soaked bed.
Guide you to confront truths
You’ve given up to the darkness.
What remains in the underbelly
Whispers to be valued,
Seen through a beam of grace.
When the sunshine shadows and
Moon shadows finally embrace, a
New day dawns at dusk.
The birthing of your soul begins.

    • Thank you so much for all your kind words, Paula! So grateful for you. Some day I imagine meeting you in person and jumping up and down with so much joy, squealing, laughing, and hopefully being able to hug you or give you a high five! :) I might get tears in my eyes, too…

        • Yes! Yes! Yes! During this pandemic of missing hugs so very much, I keep imagining being in a room full of people I deeply respect, value, care about (including YOU!) and there’s simply this crying/hugging celebration of sweet relief and joy happening for everyone there. I’m learning how much I value hugs-in their absence-I may not ever take a hug for granted-not ever… Joy to you, my friend!
