Is there a divide between noon and night..

Is there a divide between noon and night..

A switch at a blink from illuminated to gulping blackness..

It’s a crest and trough..

One slopes into the other..

And even the light, it frames shadows.. casting into itself..

And darkness is luminous..Stars and moon adoring it..

Aren’t they two brothers, At dusk and dawn one brother embraces the other….

Light fades into its shadows… and the darkness pans into land and breeze..

Even as the moon seeks parting for moments into the clouds

Turning its back on us every fortnight..

Yet the dark in those times is blistered by winking lights..

 

Which side is wrong and which is right?

Are the two ever apart? Does light ever truly leave the dark and dark, the light?

Can man confirm his bondage to right selfless?..

Ain’t the truth mutable, driven by shades of human desires,

Which right must he choose and which truth must he drape his days with?

Is the light the true right, harmless in intention,

And  does it speak all the truth..or only its own ?

And the dark, the brother, shameless, without any truth of its own?

  1. Yin and Yang – you must have one to have the other. Very little of life is high noon or deepest midnight, most of life is the fading up from dawn or the fading out towards twilight, the the trillion nuisances of light and shade. Funny though, many people do think they live at high noon while others around them see them as being at midnight – sometimes people see the light and dark different – is the light fading or growing? Ftrom a snapshot, you don’t know.

    Sorry, didn’t mean to go on for so long – I really like your poem, you expressed ti really well.

    • Yup.. True.. It’s just not possible to be entirely living in the light and ignore the dark.. They both exist in our own hearts. And at times we miss what the darkness is trying to convey to us.. Most of us Just end up condemning it. Thanks a lot for expressing your thoughts Trent. Always look forward to them 🙂
