Light And Darkness Poem by Esther Leclerc

Light And Darkness

Rating: 5.0

houses house bodies
bodies house life

life houses souls
souls house light

light shrinks from darkness
darkness douses light...

yet Light overcomes darkness
with spiritual sight the beginning was darkness
darkness again at the end
awaiting those who despise Light - -
Light's gift of love for all men

yes, Light overcomes darkness
with love's perfect sight

(Comments from earlier version; writers notified) : Sandra Erickson (5/21/2006 9: 56: 00 AM) Esther: I love this! Wonderful 'train of thought' flow from beginning to end. You only see shadows if you are standing in the light..... Sandra Uriah Hamilton (5/20/2006 7: 10: 00 PM) I've been prowling in the darkness, finding nothing, but I keep looking. Patricia Gale (5/19/2006 11: 22: 00 AM) A grand read! Well thought, such depth! Out done yourself with this one. Patricia Gale

What a beautiful sentiment you express here. And how many examples of light continue to transform us - the candle, the star shining in the night sky, the sun scorching the earth, the light in the eye of the lover. I think I feel a poem coming on.... love Allie XX

There is it would seem a human need for light. We turn to it as flowers turn to the sun. Lovely poem. Warm regards, Sandra
