A Light Shines on the Path – by Rebecca Braun

A Light Shines on the Path

Hi! I just joined the group and have a poetry offering for you that I hope is fitting for the garden. As you walk the paths through the garden, imagine an inspirational light, or a sprite, is playing with you. 🙂

A light shines on the path
faint yet warm and inviting
I follow it’s glow
losing sight and panicking, at times
but there it is again
waiting for me to catch up
Shining brighter when I truly seek it
Shining dimmer when I stray

A light shines on the path
and I so want to catch up with it
When I run it travels faster
losing me as I stumble
being too eager to capture the flame
When I slow down
tired and exhausted and weary
it comes back to me
hovering around my feet
waiting for me to recover

A light shines on the path
sometimes bright
sometimes lost in darkness
I realize
it is brightest when my heart and eyes
firmly focus on the path
and my feet calmly and steadily
walk without fear or yearning
When I truly trust
the light to shine…
