Transition #writephoto

Pass over
Towards clarity
Clouded minds seeking light
Turn like flowers to the sun
Held in thrall by clustered shadows
Tendrils of fear curled around resolve
On the threshold of realisation
And when they stand at last within the light
Turned to the shadows they have left behind
They see the threshold’s purpose shine
By their choice they are defined
Doubt and certainty
Smile at the door
Both needed

    Tendrils of fear…a perfect description.
    The expansion and contraction of the words are like holding breath and then finally letting go. (K)
