Return

When the way forward
lies nowhere ahead,
light falls not from an exit
but a window out of reach
in a familiar cell,
turn,
wait for dazzled eyes
to see beyond the shadow,
then, vision restored,
walk on, as far as the light will lead.


The photo prompt “What do you see?” took me into the land of Metaphor on an unexpected path into uncertainty.

What do you see?
