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

Very nicely expressed and I enjoyed the rhyming
On a contrary note, apparently global warming is dulling Earth's brightness, so we had best enjoy it whenever we can

Light will always be giving that shine in the beacon of hope , It will mend wounded souls and uplift the moods in the most impossible situations . It will shine in the darkest corners and shadows will not remain shadows anymore . This is poem gives us hope that even if in the worst times , there will be light , there will be hope , happiness shining through and hopefully the dark cloud over us will go far away . Thanks for sharing this with us . Its a wonderful poem
