darkness

Darkness
is as light
to You, even
darkness
cannot
cover me, deep
darkness
threatens
body and soul – yet
darkness
driven
out by the light of
Christ; darkness
that
won’t put the light out
can’t put the light out
Don’t put the light out!
For darkness
has been overcome by
Christ – darkness
is as near as breath to me
though in
darkness
I can truly see that my
darkness
is the canvas
on which God would
form such a glorious
bouquet of Colour; Light
Fantasy
of faith,
such an artist
there never was
who from
formless and void
draws such
vivid and fabulous
works of imaginative
Majesty…

Wreathed in
darkness
wrought from
darkness
beaten
defeated
darkness.

J. Lackie – Camp Geddie – January 2008
