The Color of Hope is Light – Charmed Chaos


“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” 

― Plato

Light bending, shaping, flowing 
into nicks and cracks of darkness impugned

Both an unrelenting wave of briny ocean 
and a minuscule particle of dust 
Drifting on nascent air of prophetic clarity

Stand Up, Stand Tall, Stand, Stand, Stand
I’m Speaking, I’m Speaking~ Can you hear me?

Light is here- NOW- a yearning for radiance
Broadcasting a reverberating shine 
into tenebrous shadows of fleeing fear
