IN THE WEE HOURS



WHERE WILL YOU GO

In the wee hours of the night,
where the mind can run
unchained from any anchor embedded in the mud.
Freedom is found in the depths and the sky above,
those that bother to look up and around
swim among the thoughts riding free in the darkness
are they that find the intrepid light.

Fearlessness is not an occupation or a situation
only an open eye willing to see,
able to dilate enough. Able to turn away
from the preconceived to that which is.
That which simply is as it is known to itself.
Truth, all truth,
is of that nature and truth
is found in the wee hours of nights thinking.

    2. Never, ever terror here Jeff. I am too old for terror and too fat to run from the night.

  2. Perhaps so, if thinking can ever find the truth. Sometimes I wonder.

    1. I prefer the cold blue of the moon myself Grace--there is salvation of a sort in knowing it is there to keep us on track.
