Illumination


©2014 Susan Noyes Anderson

Moths are drawn to light
and so am I,
wings awave against
the darkened sky.
Free to fly yet 
bound by naked need,
anchored to a source
I can't concede.

Moths delight in light
and so do I,
seeking shining answers
to my Why.

∞§∞

(I fear, sometimes, to meet
their tragic end
and pray the light I choose
is proven friend.)

PS. For those who are interested in family topics, I am guest posting here
today on the subject of how to help our children become friends.

Oh the questions of life…..We discover that we find the answers as we draw closer to the light. I like your analogy.

It's been a while since I visited, but I see you still have a magical manner with words!

Just another very lovely and reflective poem. You are the best.
Blessings and hugs for you!

I think the older I get, the more I need that light. I don't like feeling my way along in the dark - it's too confusing. The closer I can get to that light, the more calm I get, and the faster my questions seem to get answered.

Yes, I am drawn to "light" too. I think many of my whys won't be answered in this lifetime. :)

One is attracted to what is bright and shining.It exudes energy that is the bonus to derive from. Very true Sue!
