IN DARKNESS

#AugustMoon Day 1 prompt

It is true we all begin our journey in the darkness, in the womb of our mothers.  We leave its safety and burst forth into the light and the world with a grand wailing.  I am feeling it is how we enter each new venture. It is with trepidation and delight – like a child screaming going down a water slide. Oh the fear and exhilaration! Let me not lose either.

I feel the safety wrapped in the arms of darkness, feeling the closeness of my neighbours’ prescence around the campfire. The stars come one by one.  The flames crackle and leap.  The wine is poured.  The conversations begin.  Slowly the barriers recede. We recognize each other.  I look up into the night sky.  It is alive with stars winking and twinkling down upon us.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
