Y... In The Dark Of The Night (Poem About Hope, Hope, Hope)) - Poem by Aufie Zophy

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



Bachok, January 2012

    The tiny fly made me anticipate a sunrise with the finest of lights. So many metaphorical gems in this entire stanza. Hope is found in the smallest creatures created by a matchless creator. (Report) Reply

    Sure a firefly, a speck of light, may inspire hope and patience even in the most desperate situation.
    Simple and inspiring.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Y...In The Dark Of The Night
    Aufie, your poem has given me a sea of hope. I hope that in 2017 the extremists will wage war with fireflies, so that hope is embedded, instead of, pessimism.
    Also, I sincerely hope that you and your audience will accept my invitation to read some of my poetry. It is full of hope! Thanks again.
