barren branches


for the mountain

paths not taken

Withered Fingers

The spiritual path through life has many branches. Some barren . . . withered fingers pointing in many directions. A crooked path . . . beckoning. The black, barren branch—night coursing through its veins . . . thrumming, humming blacklight.  This dark branch is bent, not broken.


The mountaintop is shrouded in white mist . . . and night mist. The moon illuminates the path only so far. The rest remains hidden. The way is hidden . . . cloaked in mist. The mist-filled way.

Night Eyes

The barren branch is not dead. It has vibrant life inside its disguise. A path not taken because of appearances. False assumptions stopping the journey. Embrace the barren, vibrant path. Use night eyes . . .  see the light.
