Light

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

 

 

 

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.-Bible ,Sacred Scriptures of Christians and Judaism

 

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

by little and little, into a full and clear light.- Sir Isaac Newton,1642-1727, British Scientist, Mathematician

 

It’s not necessary to blow out your neighbor’s light to let your own shine.-M. R. Dehaan

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.
Henry David Thoreau

Sometimes it takes darkness for us to find the light.–Ben Lucian Nosferatu

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.
Victor Hugo
1802-1885, French Poet, Dramatist, Novelist
