Apprentice Of His Light

Jesus spoke to them again, saying,
“I am the light of the world.  
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, 
But will have the light of life.”
                                                       John 8:12

                                                   I am a student of light.
                                                   When the day is casting 
                                                   through the gauzy clouds

                                                   and the steady 
                                                   spectrum is infusing

                                                   over the myriad green,
                                                   and what is turning

                                                   from the supple-
                                                   sheen, bramble 
                                                   of summer;

                                                   I pray I am able to see,
                                                   out of my darkness, 
                                                   the outstretching

                                                   lengths of light,
                                                   the even reclining
                                                   of God

                                                   over all,
                                                   in all,

                                                   to become 
                                                   an apprentice 
                                                   of His light,

                                                   in waves 
                                                   way beyond
                                                   the violet 

                                                   and visible.


  1. Cynthia,

    I have been meaning to stop by and say hello. I first saw a link to your blog, shared by Nancy on FB. I am sure we have passed by each other on Patricia's blog too!

    I have been reading your poems, soaking up the images, enjoying your words. I love poetry but have never written any. I would love to have your talent, to be able to express my thoughts and feelings in such a beautiful way with each word chosen carefully.

    God bless!
