Meditation On a Lighthousebykitten1964©
**This is a poem I wrote during a workshop challenge. I had been told by the facilitator about how he used the Fibonacci sequence to structure a poem, and I decided to try to use it as well. I interpreted it as each line having the number of syllables that came next in the sequence...and this is the result.**
Ocean, pounding hard.
The possibility of doom.
But then, a light shines in the darkness, promising hope.
Following the light, sailors can find safe passage, a promise of peace and calm seas.
Red of the lighthouse, now assurance of kindness, of the best, safest path back to home and comfort, the warmth of shelter and human contact.
I gaze out my window at the light, the waves slamming into the rocks, the light flashing through the air, carving the path to safe harbor, and wonder if there is a lighthouse for me. Is there any guide to get me safely home again?
