In the Moment's Darkness

In the moment's darkness,
And in the moment's light,
The earth warm as the morning night,
The sky dark as the night's moon bright.

To each day held in starkness,
And the night beneath the days,
Earthen beds bring planting ways,
Shadows dance upon reflecting rays.

The fire ignites though be spark less,
Ashen walls bear birth within plight,
Generating new fruits in sight,
Feeding upon the earthen fight.

To one day begin all new ways,
Organic growth, recycling plays,
To bring new light for gentle days,
And hope to generation's theys.

For in the moment's darkness,
Begins hope of moment's light,
To change the ways of being might,
Lend to days and years, beaming bright.

Hope. Change. Warmth. Light.
What we need, and what the new generations need from us.

Between the moment's darkness and brightness
There lies a silent break
But we shall await the beaming bright future
For hope is the moments light!!

I enjoyed your lines Petrina. Very well written..

Beautiful lines here. My favorites: "The fire ignites though be spark less, / Ashen walls bear birth within plight." Well done, Petrina.

Gotta love the positive vibes that emanate from this poem. Especially, the following lines:

"For in the moment's darkness,
Begins hope of moment's light..."

...and we do indeed live in the moment of a Dark Age...but the light shall win through!

A beautiful take. Darkness and light will always be there to make life more interesting. We take the positives and hopefully the next generation does so too.
