Guiding Lights

Guiding Lights

Beneath the gaze of
a thousand million souls,
guided by their light,
we choose our path

Past concerns behind us,
we make our way,
our thoughts only for
what lies ahead

Jane Dougherty’s recent post, The sun, the moon and the stars, four poems inspired by van Gogh’s Starry Night Over the Rhone, focused on the darker aspects of the painting, with one exception, and that final line, “by a soothing cosmic wind” sent my mind in this direction, also inspired by the painting.
