Aspects Of Light

Aspects Of Light

A Poem by Chris Shaw
"

Spontaneous poetry

"
let there always
always be
this glare from sunlight
on the sea
that lifts all spirits
in distress
that calms and soothes
all restlessness
to sprinkle sparkle
where the mood
of brooding clouds
have done their best
to hamper thoughts
of happiness
to sink the soul
beneath the waves
into the ocean's
darkest caves

Chris - surely in another life you had to have been a person of the sea. You manage to see into the depths of the ocean and bring forth the light that is often hidden there. For all, its roughness and sometimes rage the sea with sunlight shining is the essence of tranquility and a place I love to be. This is beautifully done.
Take care - Dave

This is just what the doctor ordered today, driving home at 4:30 and it already going dark I felt a bit gloomy, but reading ‘Aspects of Light’ really helped lift my spirits, reminding me of beautiful summer days by the sea. The image of light on the water. Thank you Chris .

I love being out on the water in a boat, just relaxing there is such a wonderful feeling, gazing up at the sky taking in all of life's little pleasures. Wonderfully written Chris
