Unexpected Light

Amphitrite Lighthouse, Wild Pacific Trail, Ucluelet, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
The light I seek
Is not to be found
Emanating from the elegant spire
Tradition expects
But from a plain, squat block
On a blackened beach

No matter
It is still the light
And the unexpected source
Offers additional insight

I open my heart and mind
To the abundance
Of possibility
