Leaving the haven of dark corners,
stepping timidly from shadows
to travel treacherous paths
in search of sun beyond the tempest,
For this second all is still,
The sky, as yet is undecided,
Dark with frown, it wears a hint of smile.
The mountains, stoic,
have seen such storms before.
The lake, a picture of dichotomy,
Who knows how deep still waters run?
Answers are for those
who brave the journey,
one must walk in light to touch the sun.
