Living the Seasons

The Season sets
itself for the fading light.

Darkness, a beacon
—camps itself allowing the
glistening of stars to dip
into the black sea

—an endless, colorless matte.

Hidden, though the images be
—in restfulness appear ‘pictures,’
‘paintings’ once thought unseen.

In the splashes of shadows
—mysteries lie

AWAKE.

The frozen landscape
—crystal snowflakes.
A white layered comforter
blankets the earth
—birthing beyond what the Spring Season
lets loose.

Within each of us, in this Season
of unknown

what is becoming inside us?

‘Wait’…be still long enough
to allow the darkness
‘its Season.’

We awaken and ripen
when we settle into
the flow of Living the Season.

“To go in the dark with a light is to
know the light.
To know the dark, go dark.  Go
without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms
and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark
wings.”

~~~Wendell Berry
