Ar-Rashid: The Lighted Path

Sometimes it is like a cry-
“show me the way forward”-
when we have had enough of ambiguity
and foggy trails
and intuitive side-trips
that just trip us up.
We want that raying forth,
brilliant, clear, authentic.
It will come like the first day of summer
cutting through moss and mold-
incisive, metallic, and clear.
Like grace, like a cave exposed when the tide
rolls and rolls out,
you must
grasp the import immediately
pick up your backpack
and get moving.
