Defining the Indefinable Light


As I inched away from your love
I walk into darkness of a deep sea,
Enveloped in dark clouds,
Layer upon layer of waves
You are the Light of lights
Of heavens and earth
Light the blinding Light!
Light the awakening Light!
A speaking Light that begun
before the birth of question
Light coursing beyond the answers
that beget but questions!
Light a beckoning
Light a reckoning Light!
A Light too high to cede to our darkness

    Defining the Indefinable Light
    Effectively beautiful definition of this Indefinable Light, even the repetition, contrary to its effect, enhances the beauty of expression.layer upon layer of image within image.no need to tell it's beautiful. (Report) Reply
