Light is Life

Light is Life















Tony DeLorger © 2016

Translucent threads, like spider webs
adorn the prism of my encapsulation,
captured between darkness and light;
within this light refractory,
my soul in a rainbow state,
wrapped in threads that hold the weight,
spinning in a void of possibility.

Set in crystal, body taut,
I cannot move nor utter words, implore,
this prison is my resting place,
light the paint that holds, encased
within a clarity that yields no truth;
just a sentence with no changes made,
no proof or slanderous accusation laid,
what will I do?

How did I fall to this,
when clarity often freedom’s bliss,
and here I find my prison cell, the very chime of my bell,
and death no comfort, no ending rhyme,
clarity of light the dazzling blinding plight, I find,
its sting twice the hurt,
for me a translucent end, inert.

But when light in shards so strong,
beams down to my crystal soul entwined,
I shimmer with every color bold,
saturate in light’s afferent hold,
and suddenly my soul ignites,
meaning soars on high in light,
and I begin to understand.

Light is life.

    Thanks Phyllis, glad you appreciated it. It’s a bit esoteric in expression, but I think the message is clear. Take care.

    An amazing piece Tony, just brilliant. That opening stanza, wow, so intricately laid. Life is light, and I felt its aura and transcending glimmer here. Thank you.

    So nice to read your works in a new enviroment.
