Heralding The Light

From the light

Into the darkness

From darkness

Into light

Moving back and forth

From shadows

Into morning

Into night

Though with each journey

Steps are shortened

Days are longer

Night wanes

Still the back and forth

From shadows

Creates illusions

Nothing’s changed

What a dirge

This measured progress

Beats against my brain

Bleating that I can do better

In a back and forth refrain

Hush gently, the voice of darkness

No resistance to it lend

Instead herald the growing Light

With a great amen
