There Is Always A Clearing

DSC_8498There Is Always A Clearing.

There is always a clearing.
I discovered this long after you had passed,
Where, in the absence of light I imagined the night
Opening its pitch-black door just right– ajar
For eyes like mine that yearned for hope, promise,
And there you were — are still to this same night,
Where we wait to watch the meteors light the sky
For those who yearn to see the light,
Believe in the clearing (there is always a clearing)
That kindles promises bright.
