Valleys and Shadows

Beautiful sunset in a valley

As I walk through the valleys and the shadows
There is light
Originating from places I must excavate,
Before I even get near

Light from places so deep and buried
That I long ago forgot
They existed at all

Yet that barely imperceptible light,
Which has somehow made its presence known,
Provides hope,
Provokes longing for a place I cannot see

And as I look for guidance
The light grows brighter still
Until, in some moments,
All I can perceive is my light

I am surrounded, bathed, engulfed
I am the light

And then I open my eyes
And walk, enlightened, into the world
