My Secret Treasure

Night Encroaches

Night Encroaches

Digging a deep hole
I find my darkness grows
“No way out,” they say,
“But through.”
Pretty sure I’ll burn
Long before
I tunnel through
The Earth

Time to change
Direction, but which way
Should I turn
Follow my nose
Or wait for a sign
A glimmer in darkness
A will-o-wisp
A jewel, or golden glint

Or close my eyes
Turn until my heart says
Stop. Dig and dig
Angling upward
Trust my instincts
To lead me home
Find my secret treasure
In the center of my being
