The Hermit's Lantern: Autumn Equinox
by Robin Fennelly
Age Group: Adult
It burns too brightly
And I want only
To move within the
Folds of shadow and dark
Prisms of metal and glass
Light reflected from the
Hand that carved out
What lessons are etched
On a face riddled with
Deeply etched crevices
Of furrowed brow and
Mind’s penetrating gaze?
What peace shall I find
If I follow meekly
My will to your
The Light dims now
And I am left alone
With only my hollow
Thoughts and my
Fear filled wanderings.
Despite the darkness
I find my resolve that
Cries forth with assurance
That I shall find my way.
And when I have reached
Out with bloodied finger tips
And felt my way blindly
Through the black tunnels
Of my own desires making
The molten nova of star’s
Purified light will burst through
Captured within the foundation
Of solitude’s lantern form.
And I shall carry it forward
To light the way for another
Who seeks the solace of the
Waning Year’s shadow and dark.
