Bonus Post... Poem

Based on my encounters with others along my trail and the brilliant stars above at night...

Twinkle of the Soul

Stories shared excitedly around campfire
Adventures and passions a glow
Youthful companions on the trail
Moved in awe of nature's majesty

These souls shine brightly
Their twinkle is infectious
Living in abundance, joy and love
Shining and reflective of one's own brilliance

Some shine dimly
Radiating a false self
Absent of passion or presence
Seeking others to shine on them

Others are black holes
Attempting to snuff out the light of any proximate star
Absorbing what they can from others
Stuck in fear, desperation and bitterness

I want to commune with the souls that twinkle brightly

Sadly there are also black holes
