I Think Light Breaks

Poem By Sandra Fowler

your eyes have burned the time to filigree.
Nothing is left of light's necessity.
Silence has interlocked us both in lace.
Great trees are fighting darkness for their space.
Eternal whiteness decorates the grass.
Leaves skim distance like ornaments of glass.
Is there a moon for such a heavy sky?
I think light breaks somewhere without a cry.

I think light breaks somewhere without a cry. This is a masterpiece line from your poem. Touched me.
dear sandraji, words have interlocked us both in lace.
Exquisite. Enlightened. Excellent. Words that suit your poetry the best, in my opinion. I often have a certain association brought by your poem: in this case it is the melody of Ennio Morriccone 'Chi Mai', poignant yet undescribably beautiful.Thanks for sharing.10+.... Amary.
Hello, Sandra! Many thanks for your images of sensitivity, quietness, musicality. How profound it is for me this last line: 'I think light breaks somewhere without a cry.' I believe your poems spread light for good! Love, Maria
The remarkable lyrics... Insists to calmness... 10.... With love, Tsira
