Le Vaud

Here in the cold
warming sunshine
the terrain may be steep
fog lurking and signalling
beckoning back
to lower horizons

Yet higher light enchants
so, you stumble
and may even fall…
finding ground beautifully serene
yet in some place soft
even treacherous

Your foolish courage
and that again you are not
that you are ill dressed -
Even now for this promising

Yet with each step
faith follows belief
finding once more
that for you
that are open and knowing

You that are patient
hope-full and willing

You that will walk
a little bit further
this stretching slope

You who are
in good company
and with good enough sustenance,

For you…
Moments of discovery, wonder and new joy
