Behold Light

Joel Robison



pure love
 thinking of you
cupping petals of  light 
 tranquility in the forest 
 new life
~
 to  love 
 perfumed  white  rose
 language  from  a poet's  heart 
arising  from  darkness  true  light 
 just  breathe
 ~
  alone 
meditating
 light  fills  and empty space 
 soft  white  rose,  center of my  heart 
beating

  1. That was lovely, Truedessa.
    Joel Robinson was the original host of MST3K. (RiffTrax) Just thought you should know that bit of trivia!

    arising from darkness true light

  4. Letting the darkness be in the past as light brings a mighty blast, the rose blooming bright, taking away the night. Have to fill that empty space and sure as heck embrace

    1. Well, I guess art is about perception and how the work speaks to us. I am glad you had another view. Thanks for visiting.

  8. thst 2nd stanza--really profound; especially liked, "perfumed white rose
    language from a poet's heart". That says, to me, 'bold, yet subtle.' Simply because I adore the color white and that goes well with poetry, too... smiles.

  15. Enlarged picture showed me just what you saw, Truedessa! (Maybe?)
    Light accentuates truth, and truth is LOVE. (My interpretation--grin!) Scintillating picture and matching words--yours!
