I write what I feel…

The Colour of Light



The blackest black absorbs the light

Yet the light pierces the dark as a spear

Can puncture the flesh of man;

Contradiction, oxymoron, paradox,


Darkness is the shroud of evil

And light the revelation of purity ~~

What simplicity… could it be…?

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. And thus the expressions, “under the cover of darkness” and “when seen in the light of day”. And so here, you are shedding some light on darkness. Food for thought indeed. Good work Denise.


  2. You on a roll at present, I see. Another nice piece, Denise, Strong message, elegantly presented.


  3. A lovely piece.. very impressive…


  4. Love this one, adee. 🙂


  5. I like the depth I see in this, Denise – & that Seemingly… just past the middle. Maybe I’m misinterpreting your intent, but I have lately wondered at the absoluteness of dichotomies, the closed-book way we have of designating into categories where nature has always told us they are not so fixed as that.


  6. ah but to exclude darkness from the kingdom implies a limit to god…i think there can be good in the shadow and dark….
