Don’t be frightened of your shadows (Day 763)

Don’t be frightened of your shadows.

Without darkness, how would you know 

the subtle shining of a nascent light?

Instead, delight in the blurry edges—

twilight-tinted corners, forever shielded 

from the moon’s softhearted gleam.

Embrace those small, wakeful hours, 

when truth and dream intertwine, rising 

on fragile wings from Spirit’s fruitful fields.
