Y... In the Dark of the Night (poem about hope)


It is dark, no moon, no light
Just darkness, a starless sky
The wind blows, the waves break
A single firefly passes by

Soon the firefly is gone
Leaving me in the darkest of nights
The tiny fly made me anticipate
A sunrise with the finest of lights

    This is perfect writing, dear friend..the strange synchronicitys and coincidences between perfectly natural phenomena and the spark they induce in the inner consciousness. (Report) Reply

    It same thing when we was in dark time, when we find something can cheers our day it really a big relief...even if it just a while but it is a bliss...and because of that lil thing now we can see how precious it was even it smaller...being in dark is like a room to meditate, to find ourself...and observation, understanding and thought are always be a great blue print to find treasure, hidden in life land_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
