A Glimpse/A Moment

Far into the deserted valley,

She saw nothing stirring.

She’d been told he had journeyed there

A noble looking personage;

Even though the mist

obscured the downward path

Her curiosity to see this being

Lead her into the walk;

She stepped through the mist

On the path to the Valley;

Disoriented for the mist

She questioned herself:

“Could it be an illusion

That played shadows in the mist?”

When she happened face to face with a man

Who appeared out from these shadows,

She excused herself

Slowly walking passed him.

As she continued her descent

He fondly observed her;

It was then that a nudge

made her look behind.

This being gazed into her eyes

Reaching to the depths of her Core.

For a moment, she had a sense of recognition,

Within the next moment

the mist had lifted,

There were no more shadows,

He was gone.

With heavy spirit

She began to rise

a steady climb


to her above lookout;

Up upon the hill

She conscientiously waited

If only for another glimpse…
