Musings in the Dark

firefly2There is a certain comfort in walking
Purposely into the darkness.
You can’t see anything in there
But it can’t see you either.
You can see out. Those left
Behind cannot see in.

In the darkness fireflies play,
Flashing in synch with the
Inspirations of your fellow
Travelers, filling the darkness with
Light one burst at a time.

The outsiders see the fireworks.
The outsiders imagine grave dangers
Hidden in the darkness, unaware that
Each pulsing inspiration is secretly
Changing how they see the world.
