When Darkness Falls

When darkness falls
Don’t cower in its arms.
Feel its grace,
Hold it close in gratitude,
Let it wash over you,
Each shadow bearing gifts,
Taking you down unchartered paths,
Unveiling hidden strength.
The darkness has great power.
Its lessons shape you,
Sometimes with brutality,
Always with purpose.
A secret garden,
The prick of its thorns
Opening your heart to the light
That is always there inside of you. The summer fireplace...peaceful.
