Sunday Scribblings Pilgrimage


Saturdays, Sun behind the fog sparked thoughts of a metaphor. Threading it into the Sunday Scribblings " Pilgrimage" prompt seemed fitting!


Sun behind the fog


After death

Nothing much makes sense

It’s a fact of life

Unacceptable to the heart

Friends sent me to a psychic

Paid my way, a gift

For my thirty fifth

Ever the skeptic

I locked my armor of distrust

Cautiously she penetrated

A rusted latch

With her oil of wisdom

Opening a sleeve

To possibility

Setting me on a path

Of spirituality

Revealing truth

Obscure, yet accurate

Pointing me

In the direction of inquiry

Past the altitude of religion

Beyond the cloud of deception

Showing me the sun

Behind the fog

It would forever

Light my way

Through the darkest days

Energize me

In my weakest moments

Captivate me with

Ethereal synchronicities

Alter my world

Where the lens

Soiled with confusion

Cleared

Elevating me

Through

Grief

into

a foundation

of solace

and awareness!

"sun behind the fog"
I'm glad the psychic was so helpful for you.
(I'm sorry you lost your dad too young. Many of us are reading about loss from this prompt.)
