Lent: Day 23

Leaning Toward Light

I see in the morning
what I’m unable

to see in
the dark of night—

how flowers open
pink with promise

how slanted rays slice
golden through aged moss

I’m beginning to see
how every living thing

even in the shadows
leans toward light

the more I lean
the more I awaken

©️Wendi Romero

I love how Wendi uses the word “lean.”  Even if I am imperfect and often can’t see the light, I can lean in.  And the more I lean, the more I awaken to my higher self.
