Orion

No light but the moon
Illuminating my way.
Trees embrace me
There is nothing to say.
 
A rustle to my left
Should cause alarm.
But my breath is steady
There’s nothing to harm.
 
A moment of peace
When everything is known.
Mysteries unveiled
Destinies shown.
 
Orion guards the scene
From his post in the sky.
Fragile human and demi-God
Alone, him and I.
 
There’s no better classroom
Than the woods at night.
Only when fear is conquered
Comes the gift of sight.
