Treasure Island

spiritual seeker

(22-11-55 / Malaysia)

By the light we see


By the light we see,
with open eyes...
often just the surface,
blinded in glare,
lost in the shadows,
hiding behind veils,
missing the hidden truth!
It is only when windows of the heart opened..
even in the depth of darkness...
matters become so much clearer,
that truth surfaces from the depth of ignorance.

    By the light we see....beautiful sight in colors who can use their eyes to find truth and serenity
    By the bright we should see...true insight without color in hearts, even blind people can get what things supposed to be
    It always beautiful to light carry bright, it give broad meaning, but bright inside is great without light in the eyes either..but light that only occupy in eyes never mean it carry meaning if we just use it for picturing fun only_Soul (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
