The Dark

Oceans 609

When we stay in the dark too long we lose our perspective

of where the colors are, of where the moon belongs, and what is truly

beautiful. Instead we grasp for the stars, longing for more

of the black – with occasional reflections from the water.

Absorbing solace there is a sun, each of us can hold – bringing

forth life, allowing us to grow, not the opposite

of dark, but soaking it in so there is at least

a gray, and then somehow the fog is burned

encouraging us, that we can live in the colors,

with confidence.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”
