Art of Light

The sun, the star
The luminary, the fluorescence 
The soul, the fire
Light the day and burn the night

It gives the hope, it brings the joy
It shows the path, it clears the view
It raises songs, it grows dream
Light the life and wake the dead

It removes fear, it washes doubt
It takes burden, it releases pain
It withdraws despair, it conquers evil
Light the world and push the shadow

The flicker of candle, the spark of fireworks
The flash of bolt, the glow of firefly 
The bright of smile, the dance of flame 
Light the heart and spread the warmth

It bares all, it spots us
It is envied, it blinds us
It tricks eyes, it touches us
Light the torch and leave a trace

It is simple, it is honest
It is pure, it is sacred
It is freeing, it is strengthening 
Light the tunnel and follow the river

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
