In This Moment…

Sunlight danced on the corner of the landing.

It dodged in and out among the shadows there….

Sparkling…..singing to her.

She had spent years seeking light.

Now in this moment, she embraced shadows as

A part of light’s story.

It took energy to find the stillness,

To be open to the strong, happy voice of her own creativity.

She began to listen….

In that soft light, her eyes began to adjust.

She closely examined those shadows, seeing the cool blues and lavenders,

Allowing them room to flow through her, to give her their gifts.

In this moment, she began to see their value.

Without resistance, her thoughts turned to the shadows of her own life.

She could see they were friends, not enemies.

They were teachers…guides.

They were a part of her story also.

Fear held no sway over her.

She began, one by one giving them the freedom to be lovely.

  1. This is one of your nicest writings, Dorsey! I think all of us can connect with willingness to find value in the shadows we find in our lives.

    I agree, so well put 🙂 How God rounds us out in the highs and lows if we are willing.

  3. Ahhh yes, the shadows. They are just as much as part of the Story of our Lives as the sunlight. They add depth and value and meaning. Beautifully, beautifully written, Dorsey.
