As dawn burns away fog,

so Your light burns me –




all melt in Your gaze.


and Denial

are no match for Your rays;

they squirm

and justify

but are undone like morning mist.

So rise,

Morning Star,

Your radiance

is welcome

to live here,

in my dark places,

where night has reigned too long.


and shine


paint me daybreak,

colour me rainbow,

and call me

      I guess simply being human ties us all together in some ways – our experiences, while different, often produce the same inner results. Thank you for sharing, Peter.
