Carpet Of Light


A carpet of light blinking at random,
Spreads silently in freedom;
The darkness around deepened the glow,
Unfettered it continued to flow,
Over the hedges and the fences.

The carpet seamlessly expanded,
With drops of light assembling;
A bead from east, a bead from west,
All trying to bond with the best!

That fluorescent organic glitter,
Made my heart flutter,
Promising a life better!

    Light and darkness, two extremes that fascinate. Light often brings security but darkness can bring peace. I can see that your work does reflect this fascination. (Report) Reply

    now what is this carpet of light
    is it knowledge
    is it faith in god
    is it love?
    whatever, it was always there
    one has to only introspect to be lead towards it

    a powerful poem seeking introspection

    it can be light of knowledge...
    it can be light of a revelation...
    it can be the light as it originally exists in all of us and which we aren't aware of... (Report) Reply

    Very well written piece. I am going to probably not get the interpretation correct. I see this piece about destiny. I see it as the hope of things to come. Excellent work. (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
