In the dark of winter, I am so grateful for the gift of electricity and the light it brings. But come February, my soul is weary of both the dim shadows and the glaring reflections those electric lights bring. I am ready for the warmth of the sun!
So when the word prompts given by Ronovan Hester at his site RonovanWrites for his weekly #HaikuPoetry challenge were given, I knew where my thoughts were flying. "Love&Light" brought me right into the heart of longing that happens at this time of year. But then I decided to take another risk, and combine his #HaikuPoetry challenge with a Photo Challenge that he suggested as well! So I ventured over to see the weekly photo challenge at the site of Wild Daffodil where her Photo Prompt for the week was "Artificial." Ahh, those prompts could not be better suited for each other
. . . At least from my little corner . . .
Turn on the Light Switch
Glows the bulb artificial
Where is my true Sun?
And because my heart is also stirred by the Light of the Truth, my thoughts filled up another verse. This one reflects the Scripture that is most often quoted at Christmas Time:
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2 NIV
Come my Love and see
In the darkness shines a Light
Taste and find the Truth
In these days where darkness still lingers,
I pray that the Light of God's Truth
might shine a warmth
into our days
and into our hearts.
