what lights us

"into the light" Mobius Faith

“into the light” Mobius Faith. From http://mobiusfaith.wordpress.com/

than poured concrete
cracking into gravel
underfoot, this door shows

there is light moved toward
& light that finds

today the EXIT
frames the obvious

only path
through dark

the way out

At Dverse today, we are seeking inspiration from photographs taken by Mobius Faith.  Thank you, Terry, for lending us your images today.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Really nice poem. “exit frames the obvious” is such a cool phrase. Love what you did here. 🙂

    Looks like something I built. 😉

    Light moving towards and light that finds… sounds ominous.

    • Oh–interesting take–I like the ominous slant you saw, although I saw the exact opposite– I saw the same as comforting. That’s the beauty of poetry–the multiple layered possibilities…

    this is beautiful. simply beautiful. I especially love your opening paragraph, the hard edged imagery. concrete, gravel… underfoot.

    Nicely penned. Yes, the only way out of the darkness is THROUGH it. There is no other way!

  15. Susan says:

    How the light draws us moths toward it and the freedom it promises. I love that you have the light moving, that you keep the light central as a soft moving space beyond solid dark concrete.

  16. Beautiful, Susan. 🙂
