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

Surely the glow of the sun can reuse our spirits… and in these dark times we urge the sun to glisten upon us…. Lift our darkest spirits from this abyss .

Hi again Chris, I so often admire your way of blending your moods and the elements.
At first read, I "spontaneously' wondered if "blaze" works better than "glare,
but after my second, I think glare nails it :)

So did I Shelley. So did I :)) Thank you.
This is exquisite. I like the short lines. It's visually pleasing. And the thoughts are so soothing.

The ocean. What a vastly inviting yet oppressive abode. As always dear Chris...your poetry strikes at the core. The sun is so needed for many - including myself - when those clouds brood and bruise thoughts. Wonderful poem!
