• Sunlight


    A poem about how sunlight can dissolve emotional angst and cause the awareness that an external light source can mirror the fact that there is always an inner light never goes out and is ever shining through the being.


    Angst sings and howls through the aqueducts of flesh.
    It cannot escape with the breath.
    It is not softened by thought.
    It is not melted away by the passing of time.
    Uncertainty celebrates when it claims dominion and leaves what it finds in sensual ruin.
    I lie on the floor in a shaft of sunlight.
    I close my eyes to let it greet my face.
    The dark world behind my eyelids is turned coquelicot.
    Warmth is loud as it rejoices in the merciful stillness of light.
    The angst is hushed.
    It is paroled by the breath.
    It is softened by the warmth.
    It is melted away by the charity of light.
    The angst of uncertainty falls silent and forfeits its fight.
    For the light is constant…
    The light is constant.
