IMG_0191Disorientation

From darkness
into darkness
open sky
to closed in walls
light reflects
everywhere
no longer
rain splashed pavement
but reflective tiles
and spots of light
contrasting with
shadows.

Sometimes a light drown feels like this.  You go from trust and beautiful flashing lights, open sky and safety to a narrow spot where everything is too much too fast too soon all at once and overwhelming.  The disorientation doesn’t last… but the feeling of vulnerability it creates lingers on.
