Light up again..

As light recedes from the sky-line,
Shadow’s wings crave to embrace green cover.
Quivering lips of darkness yearn,
to kiss her lover.

This is dusk,
Here, light cast a shadow over vision.
When silence rules, they make love
in the dark corner of oblivion.

Ay, I am the darkness!

My veil covers the lines,
which divide all visible directions.
My dark blood dissolves all,
the divides that separate humanity.

If you proclaim light as your father,
then where is your mother?
Why have you forsaken me for so long,
for I am your mother, I am your mother.

Even before the dawn of mankind,
we stood by each-other.
Like angels and demons,
Verily like heaven and hell.

Light gives me strength,
and he takes mine.
Our love story is all about,
believing in one another.

Turn back, my son
and shed some light on your thoughts.
Half of you is made up of light,
and the other half is the deep reflection of me.

Still we converse as absolute equals,
so, hurry not to separate,
the just from the unjust.
And the good from the wicked.

As long as life on Earth dances with day and night,
my beloved and I, walk side by side.
Who are you to tear us apart?
Who are you to question myself ?

Oh dear son, it is better to light a candle,
than blame darkness.
It is always better to light a candle,
than blame your mother!


Thank you so much for this lovely recognition. I really appreciate the work that you guys do, and gladly accept the award. (Anthony)

    Good work. A world of duality. Night and daylight, good and evil. Hope the light overcomes:)

    Thanks for you poem… it was provocative for me. for me… it is when Dark knows her lightness and Light knows her darkness and there is NO duality between them. And we experience our Divinity of Love, Light, Peace, and Joy.

    This one is epic. Loved the tone, has a mystic rhythm to it. And questions some profound aspects of nature itself. 🙂
    Brilliant piece of poetry! 🙂 🙂

    Very good piece; I really enjoyed it. As I read it I could see a city full of people and lit up with the sun that slowly set and the light kissed the earth and loved her and made way for the darkness in order so that the earth could rest and be refreshed. It was like the light and the darkness became living entities. Very, very good!
    Thanks so much for sharing. Praying your week is blessed.
