After seeing this weeks theme, this morning, for Picture Perfect, I searched through my pictures. I kept coming back to this one. It was taken the night of the solstice moon. It's not a very good picture but, to me it's a "contrast" between light and dark.
When I think of light and dark, other things come to mind:
And the following poem:
On The Wings Of A Dragon
On the wings of a dragon she flies
out of the darkness and into the light
Sadness and pain cannot find her here
There is no place for anger and fear
peace and tranquility fill her heart
as she soars though the heavens up to the stars
this is where she paints her dreams
of things to come, things unseen
and if in time she loves again
this will be where her life begins
When I wrote this, my emotions were all of the above. A "contrast" of feelings. A conflicting ball of confusion. A lot has changed, in my life since then but, there are still days that I look back.
A friend saw herself in the words. She was so touched by them that I gave the poem to her.
