ignis fatuus

there’s a fine mist over the future that gives it a sheen of promise,
compelling the traveller to continue the interminable march in its direction.
how often does that glimmer prove true,
spilling a cornucopia of blessings into the lap of the pilgrim –
and how often is it merely a will-o-the-wisp faerie light,
evaporating slyly as one foot after the other sinks ankle deep in mire?

my shoes are stained with mud,
my ankles boast the cuts and scratches of the bogthorn’s embrace.

there have been times I felt that sinister sucking reluctant to let go
but somehow always managed not to panic,
always managed to work free and redirect myself,
even if only to temporary sanctuary.

my shoes are stained with mud,
my ankles boast the cuts and scratches of the bogthorn’s embrace.

I look ahead and see the future once more reflecting radiance
that pulls me, robotlike, to claim it.
who knows if this will be the time I find that blue oasis
rather than the sour grey swamp whose mocking face is so familiar?
