Light, my light, the world-filling light,
the eye-kissing light,
heart-sweetening light!

Ah, the light dances, my darling, at the center of my life;
the light strikes, my darling, the chords of my love;
the sky opens, the wind runs wild, laughter passes over the earth.

The butterflies spread their sails on the sea of light.
Lilies and jasmines surge up on the crest of the waves of light.

The light is shattered into gold on every cloud, my darling,
and it scatters gems in profusion.

Mirth spreads from leaf to leaf, my darling,
and gladness without measure.
The heaven's river has drowned its banks
and the flood of joy is abroad.


  1. Lovely words Debs! And lovely to hear that your husband is home! xo

  2. Thank you. It's good to have him home.
    The poem is lovely isn't it. I've not heard of this poet before, but this poem just seemed to reflect how I feel at the moment.

  3. just came over to say thanks for leaving your sweet comment and so pleased I did cos it was lovely reading the poem.
    Hope our paths cross again

  4. Thank you Ted and Bunny. I hope so too :)

  5. What an amazing scene in this bottom photo. What is strung across the street here? It's very interesting, and makes a really nice photo!

  6. Thanks Melissa. It's an old photo from 2010. It was part of the Laneways By George exhibition, which is part of the Art And About festival we have every year. I'm not too sure what was strung up there (and can't remember which laneway it was now) but it was a great effect.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
