Poem: Walking In The Dark

Lantern lights three steps
whichever way I turn.
Three steps only.

Where am I?

I walk,
ears wide
eyes wide
hand up.

I know this place
but darkness disguises,
I recognize nothing
except…there, that tree.
Is it? yes…no? It is.

Stop.

Stand still… breathe,
remember, connect.
You know this place,
see, there and here.
Yes, of course.

There is a moon.

Put out the light;
trust the space
your heart knows.

Listen.

Darkness is not malicious,
it is a teacher, a mirror.
It shows you yourself.
You will not die.

Protect your eyes
and walk among the trees.
