Darkness into Moonlight

by J. Sandy

Age Group: Adult

Darkness into Moonlight

My life had all but ended
Surrounded by the night
Where lost and frightened creatures
Who sought like I to find
In land of hidden features
Withholding peace of mind
Where fear and shadows blended
In never ending fright.

We called out to each other
We had no way to know
A sister or a brother
If tears would only flow.
The night was filled with voices
Proclaiming answers meek
Dissolving into noises
All phantoms of the weak.

One claimed to be a leader
In darkness he could see
Though others felt him teeter
While walking in his lee.
He claimed he was the master
Obedience his demand
In darkness lay disaster
As hand held on to hand.

Amid the shadows passes
A glow at first so faint
Unseen by all the masses
Still focused on the saint
And as the glow now brightens
I hear excited cries
To some it merely frightens
A startling surprise.

"Oh master, see the light!"
"Deliverance is near!"
A radiance in the night
Might chase away all fear.
"The light is just illusion"
Retorts the puffed up man
"You've reached the wrong conclusion, "
"Now follow me if you can!"

A few of us discover
To lead he's still disposed
And yet cries out another:
"The master's eyes are closed!"
"My faith is all that guides me"
He says, "I thought you knew!"
"With eyes still closed I will see
The path to all that's true."

Obediently some follow
The master's clarion call
While walking to a hollow
Into the hole they fall.
Despite the light, the habit
Proves much too hard to end
The hollow they'll inhabit
Where reason will not bend.

With silhouettes and light beams
Enchantment fills the night
As if through cracks the moon gleams
Ascending in its flight.
With open eyes we know how
To find the path so bright
Among the trees we go now
Toward the silver light.

We each received an answer
We each found our own way
The fear had been our cancer
Which brightness took away.
And as we found Our Lady
We found the way to trust
The dark we find just may be
All strewn with silver dust.

J. Sandy

Author's Notes: This is both a story of my own path, and a devotional work. Sometimes we are afraid to look, take a chance on our own intuitions, and follow the path in which our hearts are drawn. Now that I am in that moonlit forest I simply wish to say "thank you." May your path take you to the light of Our Lady, regardless of the directions you must travel. Blessed Be!
