A tale of discovery #etheree

what do you see photo prompt

Too long in shadow, too used, devoted
clang to the black caress of darkness
sheltered in its inky slipstream
overcast by wilds and forests
on a highway of doom
quite glad to be sad…
light stabs through
slicing beam
saving
help
rescue
unsought
kindling hope
showing a path
a narrow course
a route to discovery
the right way is the hard way
entwined in long Stygian shadows
but light is tenacious and undimmed
a lifeline through darkwood redeemed

  3. I read your poem more then once, slowly sipping on the words to understand your meaning. Very cleverly written, Jude, and as for that image, I stare a long time. Awesome post all the way around. You did an outstanding job on the prompt.
