Night Light Enfold me in your tender loving embrace that reaches out from the past with long arms to keep me near you. Visceral pain combines with physical in a continuous loop of uncertainty. I feel as though I am drowning in reflective deep waters, opaque with darkness that lingers indefinitely. Maybe it is the fullness of Luna controlling my thoughts that spiral to the depths of this darkness. As this long night gives way to dawn and another day begins, I pray that light will enter to vanquish the darkness within, while shadows of remembrance peak and I step into sunray’s warmth. 8-30-22 'Your Second Chance 1ST Poetry Contest' Sponsored by: Sotto Poet ______________________________________________ 12-19-21 Poem of the Day December 21, 2021. ~Thank you very much Team Poetry Soup and Members~ STRAND (1045) Contest ~N/A~ Contest Judged: 1/4/2022 10:45:00 AM Sponsored by: Brian Strand |

Sadness described so beautifully. Darkness, full of uncertainty. To step into the suns warmth, chases the night away. Your words linger with us.

so happy to see you had gotten a POTD on this one, dear . just now a message came up to the side of my new laptop, with a few words about a poem on a movie or something?? I hate how my new computer shows emails to me when I never wanted it to do that. Anyway, if I ever get back over to hotmail, I'll see what you are talking about.

This is sadly beautiful and you awaken in me what a sense of loss is when you lose a loved one. I am so sorry Connie, you have had a double dose of sadness this last year and my heart reaches out to you. Congratulations on your remarkable poem for which you got POTD and Congratulations for being chosen for Poetry Soup's Anthology 'It's Still Poetry. May 2022 be a year of peace and health for you and your family my friend. Hugs and love, Jennifer.

Thank you very much Elaine. I become more melancholy when the moon is full or new. I think it affects everyone in someway. Thank you very much for your visit. I haven’t been around much but I am trying to rectify that. Have a beautiful Christmas my kindred spirit. Love, Connie

Congrats on POTD, Connie! A deep, soulful write. A thought for you: If we choose to celebrate the darkness, as we do the light, our inner light illumines the darkness!
