Courage to Look (Day 400)

Finding courage to look into the dark 
banks of your own fog is to recognize 
the rambling mind of your unfinished 
autobiography   a patch of olive-colored 
mud amidst a stretch of gaudy days  
a drift of snow in a sunburned desert 
or the price of a stubbornly creative life 
the way a child ambles through 
centuries of paradise   pockets bulging   
to unpack musical nights of rain   
laying out and smoothing the map of 
magical histories emerging like treasures 
collected at odd intervals along the way
