Dancing with Life and Shadow

DSCF4209

We look straight
for the light and say,
I want this.
I want only this.
We crave the
mountain peaks
forgetting the joy
of each hard-won
step, the clench
of muscles that are
so alive with the
pulse of labor,
the thrill of
carving new
footprints into
an ancient, living
thing, as
we realize that
we, too,
are living, pulsing,
exerting effort
and recognizing
victory in our
panting, skipping
hearts.
On the way to
the light,
Let’s adjust our eyes,
notice the shadows
dancing and swinging
threatening us
not at all,
no, inviting us
to touch the very
cornerstones of
our beautiful
existence. – TS
