Light Shines in the Shadows

Lurking in the shadows
of my mind, of my heart

Anger, hatred, fear, doubt
dwell where they think
they escape the light

I dare not enter
the shadows alone

With Light in hand
I reveal that which hides
in the shadows
of my soul


It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub once again and De has assigned us the word “shadow” for our 44-word tomes. Head on over and see what others have to say about their shadow or shadows.

  10. Yes, it lurks and is part of our negative and stressed thoughts but you are right to uphold the light.

  11. Mish says:

    We do need to bring the Light with us to protect us from the darkness…even those shadows we cast upon ourselves sometimes.

  12. We do need a guiding light to excavate those shadows… Love it,

  13. Great piece.

    Oh, yes. The Light of the World outshines all, and sheds light where it is needed most. Love this, Linda. <3
