mountains, secret passageways.
Canyons slice into deep places
the sun only reaches at certain angles.
But if you come with a heart willing,
the sun will eventually beam down on you.
If you walk out of shadows, the dust motes will
shimmer with the occasional insect flashing.
The sun will illuminate the pristine
stream that funnels out this part of the earth.
You will walk through the waters
and drink in the warmth on your skin.
Feel the stones weathered year upon year
smooth, under the soles of your feet.
Feel your heart respond as you walk
in the grace of the here and now.
