Light Beckons


  • Mystic

    Light Beckons

    Auraphile that I am, I approach.

    The three-word glowing halograph:

    Way, truth, and life.

    Way glows a changing crimson hue,

    Truth shimmers past in purest blue,

    While life dances over them

    In richest emerald green.


    Light drapes over the vast vault

    Of the abyssal great beyond

    In front of space

    It takes no space

    Yet shows its face

    To be in place,

    Resplendent towering throne of grace.


    Light darkens.

    Shadowed by some awful cloud,

    And would thunder forth

    If but allowed,

    It silences the rabble crowd,

    And mutes the arrogance

    Voiced by the proud.


    And in the hush

    I hear a sound

    Soft, melodious

    Like no song found

    As I hear the joining colors sing

    Their paean rising,

    As if a bird were taking wing,

    For their tribute to their King.


    Filled with wonder

    I know this place,

    I have visited oft on times before

    When angels touched me

    And I flew outside of earthy bonds

    To the vantage where my mind could see

    This auraphile’s reality.


    It once was just a notion

    Extravagent and wild

    That I could join the colors

    And I could sing their song

    But I let the aura flow

    Until I sensed the noise

    And found I knew the lyrics all along.


    Most days, the bright ones,

    I walk within the light

    And let angels set aglow my hopes

    Until every shadow disappears

    And my vantage point seems ever closer,

    For I just overheard their private whisper,

    “If this keeps up, he’ll soon be home.”

    I am all aglow (lol) with the bright wonders beaming from this spiritually uplifting piece! What sweet words to hear whispered in ones ear! “If this keeps up, he’ll soon be home.” Well worth the wait!;)



    2 Cor 3:18 God bless you.



    Let the transformation begin...;)

    Harver, Every line is rife with either deft emotion/imagery that is fasciating and often surreal in all its mention of light and its affect, space, the natural world, until the poet happens upon the place of angels, (which by the way is my favorite part). "And let angels set aglow my hopes until each shadow disappears..." A lovely fantasy to get caught up in. ginga



    This was a meditation on a certain bible verse that stretched the limits of logical connectedness. Glad you found it a pleasant trip.

    Light drapes over the vast vault Of the abyssal great beyond In front of space It takes no space Yet shows its face To be in place, Resplendent towering throne of grace. loved this verse the best. nice write!
