pieces of light


pieces of light

pieces of light
pierce into my darkness
shattering upon impact
scattering and refracting
across an abyssic landscape
highlights of prismic colors
rain down like an exploding rainbow
and fizzle into nothing
in a garish display of dominance
the darkness consumes and devours
the fragments as they fall
until no more remain
the darkness settles back in

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
