Light

Light of the sun which helps young plants to grow
Light on the darkest nights allows a lamp's warm glow
Light of the stars
as the twinkle far away
I look up again at them
With the sun: their death, and day.

Light of the bonfire on celebration night
Light, yellow at the window,
A haven, warm and bright
Light glinting white off the winter snow
The glimmer of a miner's lamp, shining far below.

Flash of the spotlights, searching for a thief
Flicker of the fire bringing tired feet relief
- The glint in the eyes of the young, ambitious chief
Choking stub of a candle,
Sputters; 'Time is brief'.

Light sparkles off the tears as my younger sister cries
It glows in colours in the sky between sunset and sunrise,
I bless the darkness in between, that helps me rest my eyes
Which, without light, would have no sights to prize.

very lovely, ayme dear. you use rhyme a lot? I find that such formulas,(if unwavering) can hold you back sometimes.. but here I thinks its just right. x could you look at my poem, 'Happy Sea' (and the other ones? )

i know that poetry is just as beautiful without the rhyme, but it's not really my style.
