Let there be light!

Writing for Sanaa's Prompt nights :)


©2016 Vijita Pillai


The sky is bright, Sun in its might;
Matter of concern -  where’s “the light”?

From the spell of dew that made me smile,
till tiny shadow & me, drenched in its shine;
No curtains of clouds covered for a while,
but found no ray - ending the quest, jewels drain brine!

The flaming torches and spark of matches,
none emitted a soulful light;
Wishful of sensing, with closed lashes,
A “caged ruby” that shines bright!

Darkness of anger, ego and hatred,
dusted on the red gem,
Brush it with care & love that’s sacred,
For a free world having none to condemn ..

As pure as the gem, let “it” be clean,
Then shall light of humanity & oneness be seen!

  1. Whistles!!❤️❤️This is absolutely exquisite writing, Vijita I so love the contrasts between light and dark which you have weaved here " Darkness of anger, ego and hatred, dusted on the red gem. Brush it with care and love that’s sacred, for a free world having none to condemn.." sigh.. beautifully executed. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤️❤️

    Lots of love,

    1. Thank you... I was moved by story of Diogenes, the Greek philosopher right from the first time I heard it.. the idea of search for "true light" comes from that...
