The House of Light

Against the magenta horizon the waves cascaded
as the eventide ascended and daylight faded.
        No scene was as lovely as this lighthouse scene, 
        it brought me ease as it was beautifully serene.
This was a picture of pulchritude only God created.

A flashing beam strung through the ebon skyline,
and the heavens showered with stars of divine. 
        There were nocturnal sea creatures causing commotion,
        roaming throughout the azure darkened ocean.
It was lovely and splendid, God’s perfect design. 

Weathered rocks stacked up against the base
of this lighthouse I wanted to sketch and trace. 
        So I pulled out my book with my pencil in hand
        wanted to reveal to the world so they’d understand-
this lighthouse was a place of comfort and grace.

        No I’ve never seen lovely until this very night…
        sitting here in silence gazing at this house of light.
