From Dark To Light

Rating: 5.0
even standing
in the wraith-like
silence of debris,
I think positive

in the coldest night
the hottest smog
inspires me
to search a candle

cleaving the chest
of the ubiquitous dark,
I proceed…
to kindle the inglenook.

Hi Chandan. The words paint a man of a very determined nature. It's almost breathtaking and worth waiting for. But I got lost in the inglenook and so I sought it: a nook by a large open fireplace also: a bench or settle occupying this nook. What did you find there, my dear man? Kindly tell. It's not the fireplace, is it? Something metaphorical?

the coldest night the hottest smog inspires me to search a candle. How the opposites of life lead us to go on our way with determination.. like very much the contrasts that you use in your poem. tony

Dear poet Tom, perhaps you're right. Suppose, the whole universe a collection of poems of God, then the first ray of light (His first poem) was triggered from the darkest tunnel of a Black Hole! I love your comment. Chandan
