Moment in the Mist

 Moment in the Mist


Cascading mist

envelop me,

   cover my steps.

      But look, now

I shiver in fear.


Unknown ground

swallows my feet.

I pause.


   the ravens



Finding comfort in uncertainty

I make my way.

      I’m lost in your

        shroud of white, but

I journey on.


   I see reverence

 in the eyes of a raven.

      I hear the echo of my heart

         vibrate my soul.


Ravens sing in solitude,


      my moment in the mist.
