Hello, it’s me again, with more of ‘me’ poems.

A couple of years ago, a friend was preparing a ‘Service of Light’ and invited me to write a poem to be included in the readings. Light is used to symbolise God, faith and holiness throughout scripture.  In our everyday lives, light is so important in many ways, sustaining our planet, life, our well being, etc. The few words below, I hope, capture this in a meaningful way…Ginny.

Candle

Light.

Light gradually awakens a new gifted day,

Shadows appear, formed by each beaming ray.

The rising sun bathing our land in it’s light,

And the early bird flutters…..as it takes flight.

We think of the star, that first Christmas night,

As it welcomed our Saviour, the baby of light.

Light is our comforter, when days are grey,

Shining warmth around us, guiding our way.

Light is our being, light is our power to exist.

Lighting creation, as if earth has been kissed.

“I am the Light of the World” said our Lord,

We walk in his light, and hold fast to his word.

When day is done, and the light gradually fades,

The sky is emblazened with the moon and it’s aids.

Church candles flicker, the flames seem to dance,

Lighting worship, lighting thoughts….perchance.

Light remains constant, be it by sun or by moon,

By lantern, by candle, or by firelight in a room.

Thy word O Lord, is a lantern unto our feet,

And your light will always guide us, ‘til we meet.
