Fragments of Light

Fragments of Light

A Poem by Carolann Dowsett


As I walk alone 

along a sun-drenched beach

thoughts of love flow unbidden through my mind


Like playful dreams they entice me

into a world of fantasy

of imaginings beyond my ability to control 


I want to fall into these dreams 

and be lost in them forever 

hidden away in a secret place 

where the presence of evil 

can never again find me 


Entranced I float away on fragments of light 

rest dreamily upon the clouds 

No longer a physical being 

I am finally free

No longer tied down by the cruel hands 

of a world lost in the darkness of sin

I soar away to places unknown by man 

to impossible realities 

beyond human comprehension 


I am wild and free

a being of light 

embraced in the warmth of God's love 


Playfully I dance on moonbeams 

I race shooting stars 

across a universe that never ends


Joy, peace, love fills me

I have become nothing more 

than a speck in the eye of creation 


Lost, wild, free

reality slips from my grasp

I enter into a timeless void

but there is peace here 


I rest in the hands of eternity

where the wheels of time no longer turn 

in a place far beyond the reaches of man 


I float slightly through forever 

a soul adrift among a billion stars 

Heaven is just beyond my reach

I can feel its glory

The love and compassion of God 

floods my soul

and I long to go to Him

to fall forever into His loving embrace

but from a place where time is still in motion 

where souls are still lost 

and pain reigns in so many hearts 

I hear the soft whisper of my name 


I look once again towards the glory of heaven 

and every part of my being wants to go there 

to enter into this painless world of love and peace 

but the demands of the earth beckon me home 


A cry of frustration erupts from me

as I surrender once more to the earth 

and allow it to draw me back 

into its heartless embrace 


Reality seizes me

takes hold of my heart 

and I see that I am once again 

walking aimlessly 

along a sun-drenched beach 

with thoughts of love dancing playfully 

around the corners of my mind

We are all but a small part in the scheme of something much grander and perhaps just for a few fleeting seconds, you were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of something truly magnificent that lies ahead ?

An imaginatively penned poem, brimming over with vitality and wondrous beauty!

sun-drenched beach sounds pretty good,

redemption is totally internal.

some fella said once that even Paris is the same after a couple of weeks.

What you speak of in this I believe is far more "real" than what you woke back up to... you paint such a lovely picture here... funny how a beautiful sun-drenched beach cannot possibly hold a candle to True Beauty...

It's almost as though you were giving up on everything reality had to offer. Taking an easier way out. Glad you came to your senses. Had me scared for a bit. There is good here.

This is truly a fantastic piece. Dreams and aspirations... then reality but the dream is not forgotten.
