Light

Updated: Apr 23



I feel much like Frodo Baggins these days...wishing "it need not have happened in my time."

These days of fear.

Of uncertainty.

Of waiting,

And aloneness.

By nature I do not see the light. I am an easy victim of the smothering darkness and looming "what-ifs".


But in these times,

These times that no one wished they lived to see,

We must.

I must.

Search, find, absorb, carry it with me...


Whether I find it in the form of a letter in the mailbox,

A text,

Blooming flowers,

A smile,

A face I recognize walking across the street,

Or even in the innocent daily comings and goings of the chickens who call our backyard home.


I will find it.

I must.
