In Darkness, Light

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Even in the darkest night,

yearning cuts through like a laser,

scorching the abyss,

only the glowing embers of emptiness remain.


Ever searching for nurturing arms,

to comfort, to draw out the light,

from the shadow world,

the world where form is an illusion.


Here rests hope, alert and tenacious,

ever present to imbibe a resurrection,

to take a step forward into possibility,

and find the path of light.


Where light begins is but a speck,

a pregnant thought of creation,

invisible to the eye yet boundless in potential,

a virgin sun at the edge of ignition.


When a soul is filled with darkness,

a formless void lays waste this hope,

and stifles what can be,

that speck so far from thought.


Yet darkness is filled with a billion specks,

each a sun unto life and an expanding universe,

ready to bathe a yearning soul,

to close that door from shadows.


Each of us is a speck, ready to be a sun,

ready to fulfil a path of light,

to open the potential of an infinite life,

ever dreaming for blissful enlightenment.

Incredibly beautiful, voting UP ... I've been reading your poetry for awhile now, and I thought I'd give you a heads up, if you have the time - check out my article ... "Creme de la Creme of the Hub"

Thanks Aubrey; had a harrowing weekend actually. My cat became gravely ill and found out he had all these crystals in his bladder and it became blocked- you can imagine the consequence. Poor little thing was in so much pain. But he's pulled through after an opp and will be home in a few days. Life's always filled with surprises. Take care.

Enlightenment is what everyone should be seeking nowadays. With so much going on in the world and being unenlightened is a lethal combination. Really enjoyed this piece Tony. Again, you're awesome and I hope you're enjoying your weekend. :)
