Inner Eclipse

darker the shadows,
brighter is the light somewhere
even if not directly visible 

the surface ripples of a lake
without the whisper of a breeze
proclaim: life pulsates underneath 

total inner eclipses occur
when despair and defeatism
stand between hope and an effulgence 

luminescent, pure, steadfast
that lies in the crucible of being...
dormant under the ash of ignorance 

blow gently on those ashes
with the breath of presence and awareness
burnish the embers to a lighthouse flare 

that other ships tossing in personal storms
see in you the Polaris, the Southern Cross, the compass
to help set their sails on the homeward path
