Lighthouse

A Poem by Ty

Lighthouse

"
Scoured shadows,
Depth of valleys, and meadows of metaphors
And quotes,
Coupled in thoughts and things you’d think you know,
The scripture, identity amid shores divine,
Evoked, had floated then, until; to find yourself, disinter sense.
Nature furthering nurture, aligned
Essentially innate, inherent
In essence circled around forks in roads again
Apparent a path you’d take is a path you’d ponder,
Or fathom. Deep suspense
The depth or distance my turned sonar senses would gauge
Washed ashore feels displaced, but reading on, turning over each chapter and page
Faint source of light radiating in flickering ember wooden coals
Your lantern,
A lighthouse
As if you’d turned to that lighthouse, your heart, to steer, to see,
Familiar in unknown,
Clearly a ray of guidance sling shot light beacon beamed into darkness.
Radiance; the uncovered home.
Harvest natural agents, Illumination, the stimulating sight,
Life and soul
Enlightenment, or wick and mantle burning camp fire,
As memorable stories were told
Wire filament or kerosene or oil lamps,
Narrating the trek through bush and thicket.
Sampled berries and bamboo, your nourishment, your shelter
Guidance to oversee each paragraph and sentence 
Felt her presence,
Found path
That lighthouse.

Your masterful, eloquent words and lines evoke a sense of a light-filled source of spiritual path and purpose. The “Lighthouse” may be a stunning metaphor or an actual place, church?, as your image portrays. The poem is so inspiring, rapturous and filled with glorious, sacred imagery. You revel in “her presence” and a “found path”. Thank you for this uplifting and profoundly moving write Ty.

You are most welcome.
Whereever, however the jounrey takes.. along the cool stone with light a distant guide, forever ahead to beckon you into a world so warm so sustaining, it's home.. and love.. and everything that goes along with it. Your writing is so very lovely.. breath.taking in a gentle way as if sharing life..

Sighing.. relaxed for the first time in a short while.. may i walk alongside again, some time?

Fine writing words unravelling places and faces, senses and.. endless space.
