Light From Dark.

Darkness surrounds me as I walk,

The further I walk along the path

The darker it becomes.

The path starts to rise,

Each step becomes harder

As the hill becomes steeper.

I fall on my hands and knees,

Continuing the climb

Until I reach the top.


A plateau lays before me,

Shining in the dark

From the light I see,

The light I see when I look up.

There I see the stars,

And the light that is within me,

Within my life,

As I travel life’s journey,

Guided by the light.

    A fine and true write Gold.
    Meanwhile - what do I know? It was somewhat dark. Well I had not switched the light bulb on. doh! Cooeee!

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Orchi, the bulb switched off shows a better way.

      At least the ice seems to have gone this morning - well expressed Andy.

      • Goldfinch60

        Yes it seems to be a good day today, the sun is out.
        Thank you Michael.

        A wonderful write my friend - -and what a thrill of a piece of music to go with it.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Fay. yes it is a great piece of music, to me it is unfortunate that the opening two minutes of that music is the only piece that people hear from a thirty minute piece of glorious music.

          Light and love ... all that truly exists. Good write, Goldie, although at the expense of sleep!

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Louis, I get many ideas about that time in the morning, the muse can be spiteful sometimes.

            GOD said "Let there be Light" ANDY and there was Light ! Love the theme from Sky @ Night ~ many happy memories of Patrick More and what he described as the DIAMOND RING as the Sun re-emerges from the Moon at the end of a Total Eclipse ~ awesome ! Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN

                I am so glad about that NR. Maybe we will meet on that journey.

                • Hoopie

                  Oh yea man In this life or the next

                  Goldfinch, I think my muse would have to use a sledge hammer to get me up at 3:30 in the morning.
                  But reading your poem at that time would have made it worthwhile to get up. Beautiful writing!

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Thank you Fred, most kind.
