The road to El Dorado

They’re hidden in plain sight,
all the secret signs:
the guideposts of the light,
the path of the divine.

Those who can conceive
all that they are gleaning
are those who also receive
the duty of its meaning.

They must travel at the fore
into the unknown dark
and blaze the way for more
who are following their marks.

And in this way each generation
carries on the conflagration.
