The Lighted Path

I walked upon a rocky path
towards the Heart of I -
it stretched into the distance,
the horizon of the sky

I followed it uphill and down
through convoluted turns,
it seems a journey endless
but the Will to get there burns

Every time I feel despair or flag
there comes a curious sight,
a beast of pearly white appears
with a horn of purest Light

He calls to me from far above
voice of hope and courage too -
a beacon shining through my night
on a pathway sure and true

My soul has sent this gift to me
to guide my steps till dawn -
Day’s light shall find me in Christ’s heart
beside the Unicorn.

Artist's Description

I have long believed in unicorns and wrote this, and copious other work, back in 1990.
In researching the mythological history of this fabulous beast, I discovered many wonderful stories, some of which crossed the line into Christianity, where the unicorn stands as a symbol for the Holy Spirit and the innocence of Christ.
Highly recommended reading is “The Lore of the Unicorn” by Odell Sheppard
