Poem of the Month: Nuance


Shadows are there 
fallen, strewn, cast about
this path is not smooth

this path twists
back and forth
your way is not clear through

this path brings thorns
blood dripping a trail behind
one drop for each test endured

ahead is somewhat mottled 
nuances of colour
grey upon shades of grey

stars shine above you
the earth firm below

this path is yours
but you are not alone

this path brings rest and sustenance
this path takes courage
but rewards with truth
simple as it is complex
bringing strength of heart
