Have you noticed how darkness keeps us company? Day and night… 🙂 🙂 🙂 ************** TelegramTweetWhatsAppShare on TumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
A very wise neighbor once told me to befriend the dark! In other words, I should celebrate the dark hours of each 24 hour cycle as a time of rest,meditation, preparation for my next time of greeting the light!
Very true and wisely spoken.
These are words to ponder, I have to read this one over and over
Reminds me of Rumi “Like the shadow, I am and I am not”
Many depths found here
Uncover at your leisure
Picking and choosing
Thank you Christy,
Have a great day ahead,
Yes I have Eric. Especially in winter it keeps us company here, light at 8.30 am dark again around 4pm. Now the days are getting longer, but then where you live you can’t know that, can you. 😀
I’ve lived and worked in Europe (UK/Germany) and Australia – know what you mean…
Luv and hugz, Eric 🙂
Like Peter it took me three or four reads to ‘get’ it…for me it denoted loss. Eloquent as always my buddy, take care and have a great week – love and hugs Jane xx
Oh dear Jane,
I have to be more careful about making my poems/haikus too vague or figurative. Glad that you had the patience to read it several times. Luv and hugz to my buddy from Eric
P/s Have an early appointment – be back after lunch to check out your posts.
very well written Eric. your words leave strong impact:) GBU
Thank you dear Tanveer. God bless, Eric
where there is light there is darkness somewhere near it, or else what will make light true.
In this the Third Dimension, such contrasts help to guide us, I reckon.
painful and haunting.
Yes, it can be…
yes, i did.
and i must say i can’t imagine myself without it!
Nothing ominous or fearful…
maybe sometimes… but not all the time.
Sadly, much as we try to hide the darkness, it continues to haunt us. You can’t shed it as it is part of your shadow. That which is inevitable and cannot be erased. Oh, the wrong choices we made.
Very true – darkness, a constant companion of our surrounding, our hearts, our minds…but hopefully not our souls.
dark matter is the fabric of the universe. dark matter constitutes 98% of the universe. light originates from a source…it has to be created by energetic reactions…darkness is present with our without light
…and for the “blind” his universe is 100% dark
brilliant, I did not even realize this was Haiku until I hade read it 3 or four times – very well spoken …
Coming from you Peter, I take this as high compliment. Thank you and have a great week ahead, Eric
I really like the structure – , my days and evenings Will be full this week so my time may be little scarce here, thank you and have a good week as well …
Love the way you portray the lingering memory of someone.
Ah, you bring a twist
How can I thank you for this
One writes and one sees
You brought a refreshing take to this haiku. Love it, Eric
Haunts? Or brings balance?
My words written here
Your thoughts of balance or haunts
My words are mirrors
Thank you. I especially enjoyed these two questions – thought provoking.
Grasp the dark furrow
Sheets tangled in the night
Glance it’s meaning in morning’s light
Or darkest hour can teach us more than our brightest day. But we always need both to truly understand our lives…or write tormented yet inspired poetry. 😉
