Y... In The Dark Of The Night (Poem About 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

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

    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.
