FOR ~ 'The Poet by Day' ~ Jamie Dedes ~ Ms. Weary’s Blues, a poem … and your Wednesday Writing Prompt- Light Upon Light ~


But lost in that Universe of Light
will “I’ still be?
will “you” still be?
answer me that
What is the character of this Light?
Matter or myth?

                                       


             Light is neither matter nor myth
         it is The Only Truth 

in moments when engulfed is the spirit
with warmth unseen, who makes existence
tremble and shiver?  as beads moist appear
 from nowhere, soon to transform
 one to coolness...doors of sight
half shut, flipping up and down, 
'reach out, a voice calls
you hear, 'help me,  oh please, help,
I can't see, it is so dark and 

I am so weak, 'heat 'dark heat, go ...
put on some Light' O Light'
Light Upon Light' 

blues surround as blackness shifts, is it
going to lift or grow less? am I awake ?
or sinking, or rising, ascending into
more darkness...darkness before being
and darkness after? I am not aware...
my being is being created, in fluids unseen
I have no voice, nor breath, it is not Death?
I float and swim, it is so dark...

put on some Light' O Light'
Light Up The Light' 

who do I call? who will hear?
Who will come near? who will bear
the pain and make me well again?
It is The Light The Truth The Unseen One
that is the Character, No Myth or Matter
Look up , it is day...it is full of Light
Look up, it is night, it is bejeweled with Light
Light Upon Light ' and The Book is Bright

and when I once was, in the blues
I did not know what would be
listless weak  helpless was the spirit
in me, would I be? or would I be no more?
doors of sight dimly saw the "saline drip"  bag
drop by drop, drip drip,dropped the drops
would it be dark soon? or ..as I lay...slowly
darkness flew away, brightness made its way

before I knew , brighter it grew till I
 could bear no more
Light it was Light all over me, Light
Upon Light Upon Light, it did stay
till my heaviness was light and
 my blues faded away, away far away

Light the Healer, Light is Blue, see the sky?
up high or see the sea  below
layer upon layer, vast boundless in view
why blue is the color of peace?
Celeste Marion is painted in this hue'
tis holy and sacred and true'
To have hope is good to pray is best
chose the good blue, but be not in the blues'

Light Upon Light is the Ultimate Truth
Turn towards it to be out of darkness
Be Guided, out of fear, out of all 'fright' 

what I leave behind and what I may take
the good deeds I do the joy I make
the help I give the needs I fulfill and all
what for the Lord I share...for Life is a test
and to be grateful is the rest
I will go for 'life is a journey not
a destination' ...from darkness to 
illumination...
