A Walk and A Wander

"What saves a man is to take a step.
Then another step."
C.S. Lewis


One step at a time.
Easily.
The place so very familiar.
Yet full of wonder;
Each season, each day new glories revealed.


Like a dear friend.
Or a faithful partner.
Or our children.


The wonder in the known.
Discovering the new, the nuance;
As layers peel away in the comfort of trust
      and truth
There's delight in each day's encounter.


The light shifts.
Some days we're so painfully aware of the shadows.
Some days the light dances
         and the world is full,
color-full.


Under the changing skies,
I wander.
Letting go.
Breathing in.


I stand in awe of each shade.

comforted
aware
awakened

Embracing my known
and eager for 
my next.

  8. Ahhhh...the light changes, sometimes we are so painfully aware of the shadows.
    I could ruminate over that line for hours.


    The light bouncing off the trunks and branches of those trees is just amazing.
