Dark Clouds of Night
Through this dark lense
My vision sends
My sight askew
Dark filter makes perception
But even in Darkness the light shines
with this Dark vision
Rise above past strife
See beauty clear
See life without fear
Sun so dark through pain’s perception
Becomes beauty’s perfection
Ok… admittedly this is obviously another cloud poem, but when I was playing with the filter on my phone I noticed how this bright sun in the middle of the clouds over this pasture looked almost like midnight with a bright moon. (ok I probably have well over 1000 pictures of the sun in the clouds but I should get credit for not writing a poem for each one right?)
The brightness of the light almost looks crystallized and cold and in the dark version and it just reminded me of my view of the world when I refused to feel anything. The light was always there waiting for me, I just couldn’t see it for what it was.
The unfiltered light has an intensity that could only burn from truth (well as true as a digitized image taken on the third latest i-phone can be).
Truth is such an amazing healer, and like many remedies there is sometimes more pain before there is relief… In my case the truth shed light on that dark lense in my heart, His light is so intense that it shattered the lense (and broke me down to nothing). And now hopefully, His light can grow in me to provide a beacon for other broken and dark souls.
I was healed as in
..the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.
And hopefully I can light a path for others
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven
