Akin to a mirrored globe aglow
Throwing gobs of light in disco
A skylight filtering light inside
Shadow etchings kaleidoscopic wide
Intricate bright and dark patterns
Throwing relief in stark caverns
Utilitarian sparse towering open squares
Gain a personality with such light wares
A meteoric shower like a firecracker burst
Architect’s beam assuages his creative urge
Segregation, barriers figure not in disbursal
It spreads hope to all n everything, universal
A unifying force is this high floodlight verily
Taking from ignorance to knowledge merrily
Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return;
it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished. ~Michael Strassfeld
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. ~Chinese Proverb
There are two kinds of light – the glow that illumines,
and the glare that obscures. ~James Thurber

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle
or the mirror that reflects it. ~Edith Wharton
The hero is the one who kindles a great light in the world,
who sets up blazing torches in the dark
streets of life for men to see by. The saint is the man
who walks through the dark paths of the world,
himself a light. ~Felix Adler
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather,
always bring your own sunshine. ~Anthony J. D’Angelo
Rearing its head, attacking
Light dragon, swallows night
Whole, uncurling stretching
Sun’s chariot is heralded
Gold rays streamers, countless
On their march, inexorably
Glide in their stride, gilding
Despairing blooms droopy
Sleepy faces yawning, gloomy
Brighten with onset of light
Forgetting hardships’ sharp bite
Sins and sinners all cloaked
By night, suddenly exposed
Pushed into glaring limelight
Day follows night with no ifs n buts
Invisibles become visible stunning
Light’s deft sleight of hand and lo presto
Magic is sprinkled in most unlikely spaces
Artificial or natural, light creates wonder
In tiny innocent unknowing eyes, enthralled
By treasures hereto hidden in darkness of night
Light and shadow are two faces of same entity
Tied to one another like music is to lyrics, ditty
Like fact and fiction are tied to same occurrence
Perceptions are different for extroverts, introverts
Day and Night are same person’s split personalities
One has to die to give life to the other, unconditionally

Beautiful light is born of darkness, so the faith that springs from conflict is often the strongest and the best.-R. Turnbull

The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake.
There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.

If I could define enlightenment briefly I would say it is ”the quiet acceptance of what is.”
Wayne Dyer 1940-, American Psychotherapist, Author, Lecturer
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
Carl Jung 1875-1961, Swiss Psychiatrist
In this world, which is so plainly the antechamber of another, there are no happy men. The true division of humanity is between those who live in light and those who live in darkness. Our aim must be to diminish the number of the latter and increase the number of the former. That is why we demand education and knowledge.
1802-1885, French Poet, Dramatist, Novelist
Creating a stir
Fan switched off
Hopeful red eyes
Small prayers hold hands
Clouds empty bladder
Sirocco fans relief
Lifeless, no character
Splashes of color dabs
Spaces sparkle liveliness
Dangling sun catchers
Twirled by whirring fan
All strong emotions fan the flames of creation”
Bill Jay quotes

and immovable (plants, trees, etc.), and then returns to the ocean it value multiplied a million fold.”
Chanakya quotes (Indian Politician, strategist and Writer, 350 BC-275 BC)
“Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast, Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round, And,
while the bubbling and loud hissing urn Throws up a steamy column and the cups That cheer
but not inebriate, wait on each, So let us welcome peaceful ev”
William Cowper quotes
The glass speaks to the vitality of the living spaces along the street and really enlivens them.
At night, it will have a beacon effect at a very large intersection that is somewhat vacuous right now.”
Michael Bongiorno quotes
Velvety smooth spread
Inky dark night
Sightless heeding eyes!!
Paraplegic, agile mind!!!
Still fearless seeds crack earth!!!
Light and shadow
Play hide and seek
Embrace black with grace!!!
I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm. – Franklin D. Roosevelt American, President Quotes
A good fortune may forbode a bad luck, which may in turn disguise a good fortune.
Anyone who cannot come to terms with his life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate… but with his other hand he can note down what he sees among the ruins.- Franz Kafka Austrian, Poet Quotes
Fate, is an excuse for why we end up where we do! Our ‘Actions’ predetermine our Destiny, our ‘Reactions’ seal that fate! -Carl Stoynoff poet/philosopher

Papyrus to paper
In the end
I romance with words
They rumba in my head
Hide my lover word
In eyelids, beckoning
Loving them always
Till death do us part
For in every particular of the Word there is an internal sense which treats of things spiritual and heavenly, not of things natural and worldly, such as are treated of in the sense of the letter.
