Light And Darkness

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

...in 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

Great job, Esther, Light + love = hope. Robert
Amazing piece! Light always does conquer dark.
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
