Sweet Shining Light

Retired Professor of Literary Criticism, Philosophy, and Religion. Father of 6, grandfather of 6. A lover of all life has to offer. I have traveled the world, lived and worked among many cultures discovering that all people are essentially bound by a common thread.

Sweet shining light
Blinds the sight,
And my heart sinks
With a new forged link.

Falling deep into her grip
The brokenness no longer rips.
She mends and heals
The wand of hope she wealds.

In her, completion I find,
Now our destiny to bind.
Forever her promise of the heart
Guarantees we never shall part.
