In Light and Darkness

“In every human being there is an inner life, where light and shadows, joys and fear, trust and doubt mingle. Amazing breakthroughs can take place there” 

Brother Alois; Uncovering the Wellsprings of Trust in God; Taizé 2013.

A sun that rises
Through blossomed trees
The dappled light
That shines
Through shifting shadows

Where deepest doubts
And heart-felt trust
As brightness
Through fading gloom

And fed by light
Life dares to creep
Over calloused bark
As joy that smiles
Through tight, gnarled fears

And beauty
But then
Takes flight
On fragile wings
The canopy
The tree of Life.
