Blue Light

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1113 The Pilgrimage starts — the prologue

At the start of this wonderful novel by Paulo Coelho, he (Paulo himself) buries his old sword, his old light. He has grown spiritual and is now ready to grow to a higher level of consciousness. Therefore he needs a new sword …, but he is too hasty, too greedy and his master gives him a lesson and a new task.

[…] “Because of your avidity, you will now have to seek again for your sword. And because of your pride, you will have to seek it among simple people. Because of your fascination with miracles, you will have to struggle to recapture what was about to be given to you so generously.” […] (Quote from “The Pilgrimage”)


a new light
an other year has started
nothing changed

Here is my attempt:

early morning
blue light shines upon steel
he picks up his new sword
