Truth which is always there, sometimes appears to have disappeared.

The eagle casts its shadow on the ground,
its darkened image moves but makes no sound. 

The shadow hides that of which is there,
the things that can’t be seen are often feared. 

The silhouette from flight is cast below,
It darkens familiar places that we know. 

Do not cast a thought on where the shadow begins, 
when the darkness travels on, life is revealed again. 

The shadow moves its image in the moment,
be still 
and the time will be right for its next movement, 

We are witness to the image that was sent, 
we are always In the path of flight's intent. 

When the darkened image is viewed we see with false pretense,

then the light is revealing and our vision is regained in an instant. 

Be patient when the shroud of darkness shines,

the light will break its plane in a moments time. 

We see the things that have been there all the time,
its darkness clouds the visions in our mind.

I admire your words about this mystery, and the eloquent way you explain that truth will always emerge.
Best Wishes,
