The light comes in the morning like a new creation as the darkness divides and we see all that is good All living things have their moment of hope reaching high into heaven And we like them feel the green shoots bursting within budding into new blooms of light.
Once you saw the light You followed the star Then came reason self-mockery Fear, temptation despair and self-treason Now can there be a spiritual restoration?
On the dark days the devils appear . And read the roll-call of our doubts and fears . Then we need a spirit to visit us in love . Reassure us of forgiveness mercy promised from above.
Gifts of Light
A shield by day and a fire by night Are the gifts God shares through the light A refuge from the storm and the wind and the rain Are the comforts God offers for souls struck by pain. ~
So much is forgotten - The essence of life Drifting into the past While the spirit strains Forwards into a future Of experience That is sudden And simultaneously profound.

Though the scar is deep the river flows Though the valley's dark the traveller goes Though the sky is endless still I soar Heaven beckons, Spirit searches for more... ~

New Blossomings of Hope
The apple blossom now is out And the bluebells dressed up early As if eager not to be outshone By the golden dance of daffodils Or the snowdrops’ pure white folk These lightsome, wondrous spring-filled days Raise the soul To higher beams of sunniness New blossomings of hope.
