A Brilliant Light

A brilliant light I see while leaving earth's grey mist. Approaching it, I see inside of its white glow - the precious smiling souls of those I've loved and missed. Sweet clarity! All things I'd wondered - now I know! For Carolyn Devonshire's Perceptions of Heaven Poetry Contest

Andrea, nice to see this one in the winner's circle with its beautiful message and nicely cadenced iambic hexameter, which I think is kind of rare for you. But you know, meter and syllable count is not the same thing *wink* ;^)

I meant the iambic hexameter is kind of rare for you, not the nicely cadenced part. That is a given for your poetry!

Healing words for earthly hearts. We're filled with soulful joy. They give us hope when our soul departs. No more can evil spirits annoy.
