A Poem-A Painting


Goddess of Light

Goddess of Light

Goddess of Poetry and Light 

Walking a world of darkness,

she spreads her flashing light.

With words as swords of freedom,

she fights a courageous fight.

Lightening flashes ‘round her,

as she speaks her words with care.

To those with understanding

and a need the soul to bare.

Flowing from pen to paper,

emotions rushing forth.

The mind a writer’s jumble,

allowing words to take their course.

The Goddess stands beside us

guiding our hands as we write.

Burning our souls on paper

and bringing the world to light.

The darkness pushes toward us

casting shadows on our souls.

Our Goddess throws forth the light

cast by our words so strong, so bold.
