In Their Shadows

By bahafaith, Apr 6 2018 03:57AM

Shadows are necessary, not necessarily frightful

Dynamically cast as witness protection to light

In shade, in night

Bearing witness to TRUTH when in obscurity

Optimally, a hiding and guiding space, for We -

The weary even leery in our training or gleaning

Peace under the shadow of the All-Mighty

Wisdom from the towering spirits of ancestors

Like Malcolm, Maya and Martin, king of dreams

Signposts of hope when yearning feels denied

In their shadows we are fashioned and inspired

On paths too great and too dark to tread alone

Until the light within is stronger than the doubts

And we rise and shine forth like the noon day

- exposed in splendor as created
