The hidden wealth of light



Hurunui River

The hidden wealth of light

Sometimes the light trickles in
as you stumble through a broken world,
pressed down by the darkness.
Light from behind the stars
envelopes you with calmness, 
pierces hope into your heart 

Sometimes the light trickles in
You try to grasp the treasures rays
as their magic, touches you, makes 
you come alive, nourishes you. The light
lingers inside your soul, when you live
in the shadow and rest on decaying leaves.

Sometimes the light trickles in
on the wings of music, on the waves of 
laughter, always joining you in dance.
You can witness its sparkles
on the wild river rushing through the
wilderness, whispering wisdom 

Sometimes the light trickles in,
as you tune into the source that feeds 
you with words, which lights up 
someone’s eyes, reflecting your healing.
Grow your wealth, use the light 
for the seeds of love you planted.

  5. What a gorgeous photo to go with your powerful poem Marja.
    Being a lightworker, your words resonate with my belief. The light is always there, no amount of darkness can hide a spark of light.

  10. The repeated use of "sometimes" seems to suggest that the light is not always available...

    1. That's correct. Often we live in our head, worrying or we are angry or sad. In these times we don't really hear the music, we don't let the light in.
