What the light reveals

Lurking in the shadow here --
united with the shadow cast
by that which moves me
forward into destiny --
I see that there is unexpected life;
a hint of growth
I'd not have noticed
against the vibrant colors
of the known;
its subtle hues would tend to blend
into the background...
Perhaps I'll stop and turn my eyes
from future into now;
examine that which, growing here,
might threaten to entangle me
and halt my journey:
perhaps it will suggest another path,
or some new source of energy...

Hmmm. Love this ruminating. Symbolic hopeful spring. "Hint of growth"
