Live Life Lovingly!

Light of Life.


In the vastness of the dark
A single candle makes a difference
It illuminates and creates interest
It draws attention and focus
For it casts a riveting spell
It attracts life towards it
For it is light of Life itself.

Light and dark
Fill the void
With their own potential
There is much that is yet dark
Yet even a glimmer of light
Sends out a message there is hope

The purpose of light
Is to shine on its path
In spite of the darkness
The essence of light
Is never hidden too long
Although the light
May cross paths with darkness

The nature of light
Is to shine on…
No matter the darkness
For it cannot remain
Too long in the pocket
Suppressed or subdued.

It shares from wherever it can
In every direction and distance
And when it stir up on some reflections
And has pushed those shadows behind
It knows it has fulfilled its presence

Light is all encompassing
All allowing and fearless
Lighting paths of darkness
In clarity and understanding

In the utter dark of the night
Its presence needs a little wait
In both patience and perseverance
To envision the mighty rays
The dawn of its true potential

In Lighting the hearts
Aflame in purpose
In beauty of the envisioning…
The potential of possibilities

Light of Life
You are on your own
From the moment you birth
And you are enough for you


This poem is a reflection of my thoughts after reading my good friend Anne Copeland’s verses on Lady of Light. .And while you are there you should also check out her very interesting blog All In a Days Breath.

  1. Wonderful !!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a nice day!!!

    A poem of a great poem of Greece K. Kavafis


    Days to come stand in front of us
    like a row of lighted candles—
    golden, warm, and vivid candles.

    Days gone by fall behind us,
    a gloomy line of snuffed-out candles;
    the nearest are smoking still,
    cold, melted, and bent.

    I don’t want to look at them: their shape saddens me,
    and it saddens me to remember their original light.
    I look ahead at my lighted candles.

    I don’t want to turn for fear of seeing, terrified,
    how quickly that dark line gets longer,
    how quickly the snuffed-out candles proliferate.
