Violet Spark

May 16, 2008
By Jeff Schappaugh, Petersburg, IL

Night looms.
Nature lulls away the trouble of the day.
Its beauty never argued.
The sun leaves again, returning another time,
But for now its rays light up eyes with a far deeper shade.

From the lost end of the spectrum comes this violet ray
where human detection is at limit.
This lavender hue blasts through the atmosphere,
then glides through the clouds to find its home.

As it illuminates the pathways to the soul with splendor,
the core may be made radiant,
In these moments the heart connects with creation,
and visions are conceived.

Embrace that violet spark in hand,
cling on until the night is gone,
nurture into adolescence and
grow, sweet notion, into a dream.
