UNBROKEN LIGHT

UNBROKEN LIGHT

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

"the world a blossom in perilous bloom"

"


the relentless unbroken light 

breathes in the fathom night

walking darkness one last time

tousled red silk strands ignite 

dying strings for bleaches smite

 

ruthless emerges with the sun

hits behind a mask of dust 

window shades and layered rust 

the broke back addict bent in more

buys sight unseen face to the floor 

 

begging beauty for something to reflect 

the fuel to feed hopes neglect

turns the wheel in a kaleidoscope effect

colors splattered over shattered glass

spinning silver in lights finesse

 

pressing images in depth of design

waves engulf a surge to tide 

spilling over twilight's gloom

a knee upon surrendered doom 

the world a blossom in perilous bloom

 

petals sculpt destined wings

rise in hue to sail or sink

fall from the sky in battered might

scatter fireflies cluttered bright 

fiery spots stretching the sky

 

illumination over wonder

the artist’s splendor

hand to a chisel and hammer

creator carving bone into matter 

seeker of perfection in a spine 

 

the humble tumble freewill’s divide

a chance of life or death divine

as they crumble side by side 

reaching for heaven to find

the relentless unbroken light 


Terry D’Arcy-Ryan

so tightly illuminating. light is an amazing thing both literally and figuratively. i love how you relate the different characteristics of light to life. it's hard to completely block light - it seems to have a mind of its own to find another way around. there is no life without it and is what carries us through the dark times. outstanding stuff Terry ... :)

"... darkness was over the surface of the deep ...
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light." - Genesis 1:2-3
