Sometimes it disappears into shadows,
murky and swirling with mist.
Perhaps overcome with overgrowth,
tangled and impossibly wild.
At times it converges and I
see a friendly face
brimming with relief.
And then there are the moments,
the strokes of pure ecstasy,
stumbling through thorns
and brambles only to discover
a sun-drenched field.
A place to be, feel, discover.
A pause in the relentless journey.
Where all suddenly clicks into place
and it seems as if the Universe
is for me, around me, inside of me.
