Deep into the night I wander,
trying to find meaning of the darkness.
There is not much to feel around me,
only the cold that seem to envelop my senses
that seemed attuned to the noises
that permeate the stillness of the air.
I hear the cricket’s song.
Its incessant chirping is like a balm
to my soul that felt alone.
But, beyond the dark, I see a light.
It is beckoning me near.
It is not offering me any answers
to the questions I was asking,
but it is drawing me closer
to tell me that in light as in darkness,
there is much mystery.
