Dark in the Love

Then through the darkest hour of night
We see a glimpse
A hint of light
A candle flickering
Nearby
Or a glinting star
In distant sky
And in the very edge of sight
Perhaps a subtle flash of white

We venture on – our worry slight
We see no need
For fear or flight
A shadow moves
Catches the eye
We hear a sound
A sob or sigh
The heart may tell us what is right
But the price of love defies delight

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    That is a most beautiful poem. Yes I just went back and read it again. And I’m sighing here, my friend. Thank you, Penny 🙂
