Aside

Yes.

Spring quickens barren branches.
Ducklings cluster together
behind their diligent mother.

Yes.

Ultraviolet joy
traverses a black expanse;
bestows life, vision, beauty.

Yes.

Breath of divine Revelation
refreshed, renewed.
A new cycle begins.

Yes.

Shadows/Sun

From every side
they clamor and claw,
yearning to steal
your heart, your money,
your mind.

Shadows grasping at shadows.

You were not born
to live in this darkness.
Your heart is a sun
that shadows cannot reach-
don’t be fooled by its husk.

Why be satisfied with dust
when an ocean of light
is surging within?

“O SON OF BEING!
Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favor upon thee.”

– Baha’i Writings
