Lampposts

They have always been there standing tall, watching over and shedding light.  Their presence especially prominent during those late winter night walk along a path with end-goals tiny, if not invisible.  From time to time, the messenger of the light and shadow came to life.  Sometimes she alerted and urged.  Other times, she illustrated and ridiculed my pointless worries and paranoia – I could laughed along too, sometimes.  Once in so many full months, she blinked as I approached to acknowledge me and make me feel special.  Tonight, she blinked twice.  She knew.  I needed that.  Thanks.
