Path Of Darkness, Path Of Light | #Poetry | #Poem | #Prose | #Quote | #Writing | #Darkness


A path paved in darkness can be recast in light.
But a path seared in light cannot be recast by darkness.

I wrote this a few years ago.  Given the contrast between darkness and light, my childhood, my appreciation for both color schemes as well as grays, and everything else in between, this one’s one of my favorites.

Caught in desolation, you are fraught with frustration
As the sparrow chased the morrow & sought rumination

It showers it’s power to allure fascination
In the hour it glowers in pure devastation

Last night I began rereading the classic Moby Dick, and its references to sea serpents and so on spawned this one.

Wings Are Made To Fly | #Poetry | #Poem | #Prose | #Quote


Weeds are made to mow,
As thoughts are meant to try.
Seeds are meant to grow
As wings are made to fly.

Author’s Note:

I wrote this when I wrote Wings Are Made To Fly, Seeds Are Made To Grow a few weeks back. I thought to use it as an introduction for the post, but then I changed my mind.  It’s not my usual style, and I had forgotten all about it until I was organizing my desktop just minutes ago.  Still, its simple and I enjoy it.

Also, I thought of using the word ‘things’ in place of ‘thoughts’ to use a paired rhyme schemes that I oft-employ as I originally made the poem, but to me ‘thoughts’ would be a more precise word, while things, although rhyming, is rather vague and not as incisive.

Those of you who enjoy the Dark Poetry, worry not.  There’s still a lot of that on the way.  Just wanted to share something different was all.

Devastation sent thunderbolts greeting me at midnight
My rumination’s under assault by all that ever hid fright

The thunderbolts are nightmares that spawn n fear-laden assault, a veritable tornado of fears.

Dark grays that start days bleached in darkness
Spark forms of stark storms reaching dark bliss

There’s something about the kaleidoscope of gray hues that storms offer that I have always found incredibly fascinating.

Author’s Note:

Though I’ve been on a Dark Poetry roll of late, this is only the second (or third?) piece that’s positive that I’ve written in dozens of poems the last week.  I usually stagger them in order, but I thought I’d move it ahead of the line since I thought it was worth sharing to shake things up and not be so somber.

Was just washing the dishes when I thought of the above poem.  It was inspired by the song Diving Into You by 4 Strings which played on my Ipod just minutes ago.  Though I hadn’t heard it in a while, I’ve easily heard it hundreds of times in my life and I always feel myself melt into it.  If you enjoy something upbeat that’s a fuse between dance and techno, then this might be enjoyable.  If not, it still has amazing lyrics nonetheless.  Hope you all enjoy.
