small stones – April 7, 2016


I see
rainbows through grey skies
butterflies amongst beasts
joy through tears
love dwelling with hate

‘though I walk an obscure path
do not mistake this for indifference
my heart beats with beauty
light shines into my soul
love radiates outwardly from me

I just happen to prefer
the darkness

    Reminds me of, “To see a world in a grain of sand…” Beautiful poem, Lori. The darkness hold its own intrigue. 🙂

    The yin and the yang – a above, so below – light and dark … one without the other is incomplete.
