Above the Shadows

Day 287
The Rebuild: Day 6
Above the Shadows.

To my right I see,
in the inner most room,
located in the kingdom of
my soul,
a shape-shifting spirit guide.

Here to teach me
the value of
a shadow’s worth.

Shape-shifting smoke
transforms into golden star dust
wings form, and lift me
above dark, swirling
storm clouds.

Once through
electric-filled air ,
light streams
in all directions
as far as the eye can see.

Below me shadows.

Above me crystal sky.

I understand: they are
what I make of them–
caught in their under tow,
or surfing above their destruction.

I need to become
a fish out of water
able to breath
on new land.
