Then suddenly, and without warning, things change.
The known lanscape, with it's boulders, and it's sunsets,
It's smooth lakes and it's cottage gardens, - disappears.
You can't even see a new landscape yet. You're in
The in-between place, wreathed in mists and shadows.
You don't even really believe there'll be a new place.
For now, all you see is grey light, and shadowy,
Menacing forms in the fog. This is where courage is needed.
To take the steps you need to take. To keep taking,
First one step, then another, towards an unknown destination.
Courage; and with that courage faith; faith that a new landscape
Will slowly appear as the fogs that swirl around you lift.
