Paths of Light

IMG_1768

One hundred searching souls
lined the hallowed shore.
As the waking sun glimpsed
through the parting clouds,
like divinity’s own eye,
to each a path of light
appeared upon the water.
From the sacred ground
where each soul stood
a personal path beckoned
as though drawn by cord to chord.
All paths emanating
from the same light,
all paths leading back
to the same source.
